The 2018 SAGES Humanitarian project in Seattle is Mary’s Place in The Regrade, an 87-room shelter for multi-generations, housing 300 people per night, and serving 1,000 meals a day. They are in need of Men’s and Women’s business suits, business casual clothing, shoes, socks, and accessories for the homeless to wear to a job interview or work.
How can you help make a difference is someone’s life? As you start to think about packing for Seattle, check your closet for a suit you do not wear anymore. Extra pair of shoes collecting dust? Sock drawer overflowing? Too many purses? Costume jewelry? (put in ziploc bag please)
In order to prepare for collection of the items, please take a minute to let us know the items you will bring to donate:
A donation table will be set up at the Convention Center.
