Dear Friends,

Happy Independence Day!

Celebrate the Fourth of July with us tomorrow at 9:30am at UU Marin (240 Channing Way, San Rafael) with our birthday gals, Erin Meyers and Jen Gonzalez!  Please wear red, white and blue!

For their birthday wish, Erin and Jen are collecting new or gently-used boys (ages 5-18) sporty clothes (cool tees, athletic shorts, sweats/joggers) for Bloom, a local non-profit YWCA organization. They are in very low supply. Women and men’s clothing gladly accepted too. Only Spring or Summer clothing please, due to space limits. Erin will have bins at the July 4th class or happy to accept at any other time. Thank you!

About Bloom

Bloom provides complimentary wardrobes to children, women, and men who are transitioning to a life of self‐reliance. Their clients are low income or working poor populations referred by supporting social services agencies. The population served includes participants in substance abuse recovery programs, victims of spousal abuse, as well as others who are homeless, jobless, or suffering from economic hardship. Bloom is the only non-profit in the United States to provide wardrobes for the entire family at no fee to the client. Their fabulous consignment shop located at 1557 Fourth Street in San Rafael is open to the public, and helps fund this amazing program.
