The girls dress donation service Girls Charity has teamed up with UK-based charity Clothes for Girls, which is providing clothing for the homeless, and aims to give away over £300,000 worth of items to girls in need.
“This is a very big deal for us,” Girls Charity’s head of global partnerships, Laura Lough, said.
“Our goal is to give a hand to the homeless girls, the girls in our community who are in desperate need and we’re delighted that we are partnering with a charity that is working in that area.”
The organisation’s new partnership with Clothes For Girls was launched in December 2016, with a new campaign encouraging girls to donate their clothes to charity.
Lough said the charity was looking for more ways to partner with the charity, so that the girls clothes could be donated to local organisations in need of new clothing.
“The girls who are coming to our door, whether they are young, old or disabled, are often struggling with some kind of physical or mental health issue and we want to support them and support the people that they are working with,” she said.
The girls charity is currently in the process of sourcing new dresses and bras for the girls, which will be donated directly to the girls’ local organisation.
“We’re very grateful for the support we’ve been able to get from Clothes,” Lough explained.
“And we look forward to seeing what our next few years will bring.”
