Motivational Mondays : A Call for Help

One of the biggest fundraisers of the year for Dress for Success Memphis is the upcoming Upscale Garage Sale now in its fourth year. In previous sales that I have participated in, there were many donations of brand new items from local high end stores that were being sold at a bargain. I got a pair of $120 jeans that were made from sustainable fabric for just $10 that DFS put aside for me {since I was a volunteer but more likely because no one else would probably fit into the size 0.}

Dedicated shoppers to this sale came early to snag great items for a good cause. It definitely is a don't miss event. If you don't want to wait until the day of the Upscale Garage Sale to help Dress for Success Memphis, please “turn your closet inside-out” to find items you can donate or become a volunteer who in essence gets a sneak peek of the inventory. Hope to hear from you soon!

Item Donations
The date of the sale is Saturday, October 24th and as the planning is well underway, we still need your help by donating items you would consider “upscale.” Other than clothes, shoes, coats and accessories; we will also accept houseware, home décor, books, toys, and any other items you see fit.

Food Donations
If you would also like to donate food or drinks such as sodas, chips and popcorn for the event, please contact DFS Memphis as well.

Volunteers are needed the day of the sale to set-up, sort, assist customers, and clean-up. Please contact Tiffany at DFS Memphis to sign-up.
