The Community Resource Center of Stanwood-Camano and the Stanwood Camano Food Bank have teamed up to create The Wardrobe, which provides new or gently used clothing for teens and young adults in the area. The grand opening will be 3-5 p.m. April 12 at the Community Resource Center, 9612 121st St. NW.
“Our goal is to provide a safe place where people can either come in and shop, or people can come in and pick up the clothing that’s needed,” said Aubree Downing, teen programs coordinator at the Community Resource Center.
Downing said there are mainly three categories of clothing: everyday, business attire and seasonal. Right now, the seasonal category is focused on prom dresses. Sizes range from XS to 4X.
The idea for The Wardrobe came when the Stanwood-Camano School District reached out to Kathy Moe, executive director of the Stanwood Camano Food Bank, and said there was a need for emergency clothing. Moe then collaborated with Mary Bredereck, executive director of The Community Resource Center.
People who are interested in shopping can stop by The Wardrobe at The Community Resource Center or call 360-269-5257 ext. 1004 to make an appointment.
“We’re not necessarily the neighborhood Target so to speak, but it is a resource so that if somebody shows up to school or shows up to the food bank, they can come here,” Bredereck said.
