On Saturday, August 11, First Colony Mall will host the PennyWise Donation Drive in support of the Fort Bend County Women’s Center. Volunteers from the organization will accept donations of new or gently used men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and shoes; jewelry and accessories; furniture; electronics; and housewares at the shopping center from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Items that are donated during the PennyWise Donation Drive will be sold at one of the Women’s Center’s PennyWise Resale stores, which support the Center’s client programs by offering donated goods to the public at low prices. PennyWise Resale also affords clients and their children an opportunity to find free clothing, furniture and other household items, that are necessities in establishing an independent household. There are three PennyWise locations, visit www.fortbendwomenscenter.org www.fortbendwomenscenter.org> for addresses and hours of operation.
The Fort Bend County Women’s Center is a resource for abused women and children who have nowhere else to turn. The organization assists survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and their children to achieve safety and become self sufficient.
Individuals with donations will find the PennyWise Donation Drive volunteers in the parking lot just outside of First Colony Mall’s Food Court.
