Help Us Distribute Clothes to Those in Need in Our Community
Our Bethel Boutique is our clothes closet that we operate for families of the Bethel-Danebo School District, through referrals from school counselors. We provide new and quality used clothing, with new shoes, socks, and underwear for all sizes (both male and female).
We’re aiming for an improved experience for our “shoppers” and volunteers. We’re hoping for more and more fashionable clothing and more and more volunteers to assist our shoppers and organize the donated apparel. A sign-up sheet is available on the “Connect” wall in the entryway if you’d like to volunteer, or contact Diana Renn to be added to her volunteer list to get updated requests when she has them for sorting, helping kids shop, etc. You’ll love the new experience we’re providing for the kids that come through! This is a great ministry!
- First Saturday from 9:00am – Noon
- Second and Fourth Tuesdays from 1:00 – 4:00pm
- Third Wednesday from 5:00 – 7:30pm
To get involved, contact Diana Renn at (541) 688-9085. Visit our Facebook page, too!
26 students have walked out the front doors with bags of free, fun, and fashionable clothing to start out the new school year!
Our appointment calendar is full into October. Right now there is an immediate need for two more volunteers to join me on Tuesday, September 26 from 1-4pm. The volunteer sign up sheet is located on the CONNECT board.
We have an immediate need for Women’s sized underpants in sizes 7, 8, 11, and 12. Monetary donations to cover the costs of restocking for this new school year are always welcome. Make your checks payable to Bethesda Lutheran with Bethel Boutique in the memo portion. We make sure your dollars go a long way with sales and coupons.
COMING SOON: Craft Fair! Will benefit the Bethel Boutique. November 4, 10am-3pm. More info coming. Tables available for $25. Get the vendor contract on the Bethel Boutique Facebook page or from Diana Renn.
How to Donate Clothes
If you have been wondering how you go about donating to the clothes closet, kindly follow these three steps to make our volunteers’ jobs as easy as possible:
1 All donations must be in good condition and freshly washed. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself “Is my donation something that a child or teen would wear to school?” The Clothes Closet serves children from kindergarten through high school. If possible, donate only “in-season” clothing due to our storage limitations.
- No torn, stained clothing or broken zippers
- No used undergarments (underwear, bras, etc.)
- No bathing suits
- We are NO longer accepting used shoes
2 Package items in small to medium sized trash bags so our volunteers can easily lift them. Close bags to avoid spilling.
3 Place donations downstairs in the bin outside of the Clothes Closet. We are located in the church’s lower-level. The church is open weekdays from 9:00am – 3:00pm and Sunday morning the doors are always open!
