Spring Cleaning for a Cause

Clean out your closet and donate your gently-used fashions and accessories at the convenient National Council of Jewish Women / Cleveland (NCJW/CLE) Legacy Village drop-off site located at the top of the escalators near Starbucks. The items you generously donate help support the countless programs that directly impact the lives of women, children and families in Cleveland and beyond.

Here are some of the places your donations go:

Thriftique Showroom: Thriftique Showroom (located at 5055 Richmond Road in Bedford Heights) is one of the largest upscale resale shops in Northeast Ohio. Thriftique is a destination for furniture, artwork, clothing (men’s and women’, home goods, accessories, and a wonderful assortment of jewelry and seasonal merchandise.

Designer Dress Days: Designer Dress Days is Cleveland’s most anticipated sale of new and gently-used resale designer brands. “DDD” combines the fun of bargain shopping, fashionista finds, and philanthropy. NCJW/CLE volunteers make DDD an easy-to-navigate shopping experience that supports NCJW/CLE’s many programs changing lives for women, children and families. Most recently, the event took place at Legacy Village.

Share What You Wear: SWYW collects, then distributes, clothing and supplies to children in need or in crisis through school and agency social workers. At our in-house store, volunteers fulfill orders by personally shopping our inventory of donated new and gently-used clothing to create gender and size specific clothing bags. New toiletries and school supplies, also provided through donations, are included upon request.

TLC Project: Victims of sexual assault who come to the emergency room for medical care find that all their clothing is taken by specially trained nurses for evidence. This program provides bags filled with brand new clothing including underwear, socks, shirts, pants, flip-flops and toiletries for victims of sexual assault. The bags and its contents are sized so that the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) only has to take the correct, color-coded sized bag and give it to the victim rather than trying to assemble clothing from a hodge-podge of donations for these women to wear home from the hospital.
