Hope Academy Clothing Drive

If you are like us, you are getting ready to do some spring-cleaning. But this year, we thought we could do more than just put unwanted clothes in the recycling bin. So, we decided to give them a second chance – and do some good in the process!

This month, we’ve partnered with Schoola to host a Hope Academy Clothing Drive fundraiser.

Schoola is committed to helping schools like ours give students the tools they need to succeed in the classroom and beyond. After collecting gently used clothes, they sell the items in their online store and then give back 40% of the proceeds to Work, Play, Love.

From March 14-28, all donated clothing will help us build a school for the girls in Guatemala, provide tools for them to learn, and pay the teachers’ salaries. You can make room for spring, do some good with your unused clothes AND shop for new items at up to 70% off retail price.

It’s so easy to make sure your used clothing helps Hope Academy:

1. Clean through your closet and set aside freshly laundered,
quality items that originally sold for more than $15.

2. Drop off your clothes at one of our two locations:

Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce
210 Plaza
Solana Beach, CA. 92075

Natural Elements
609 South Vulcan Ave Ste. 201
Encinitas, CA. 92024

OR

3. Request a pre-paid shipping label via kim@kimmelia.com,
put your clothes in a box and drop them in the mail.

4. Go to Schoola.com and shop for great clothes
that you can start wearing this spring and summer!

Hope Academy Spring Fundraiser

Whether you have a closet full of nothing to wear or just a few items that no longer fit your style, every item you donate helps us get one step closer to our fundraising goals for Hope Academy.

We want to see if we can get at least one person from each state to participate, so spread the word!

Thank you so much to all of our Hogar Heroes and friends all around the globe – you are truly making a difference.
