Fashion-forward and impacting our community, that’s just how we do it at DS. Well, we might not all be in vogue, or worried about how our clothes hang, but we know a good cause when we see one.
Since 2002, we have worked with Goodwill Industries-Knoxville on the Vintage Fashion Show and Sale, its biggest fundraiser and largest public event each year. DSers donate their time and work to help the organization promote this yearly event, and we always come away feeling a little better. This year’s poster and some of the photos from the show are up on our Facebook and Instagram.
Goodwill strives to provide vocational services and employment opportunities for individuals with barriers to employment, which they can accomplish only with the support of the community. In fact, Goodwill was recently featured in an Ad Council campaign. It’s not hard to see the value that Goodwill provides, and how simple it can be to help. We think the Ad Council did a great job in describing Goodwill’s mission—“Donate Stuff. Create Jobs.”
