Shanghai's Top Al Fresco Restaurants & Terraces – That’s Shanghai
Most of the people who walk through the door at the appointment-only boutique have little more than the set of clothes on their back, or not much more — whatever fits in a backpack, usually. Imagine the feelings they experience when their case-workers connect them to this vital lifeline for gaining the confidence to walk into an interview? Though the boutique is decked out with beautifully ironed and coordinated work outfits in all styles and sizes, many jobs in the area do not require suits and ties.
Jeans and heavy duty clothing are much needed, as are heavy work boots. Sneakers are another hot item. Her co-manager, Gisela, shared how one client she outfitted with back to work clothes and a bracelet, said she had never owned any jewelry in her life. The all-volunteer staff could do with a little more help every now and again, particularly on donation drive days. If you like to sew or you're known for your expert stain-removing techniques, a few hours here and there helping out at Work Ready Apparel would be tremendously well spent.
Simply taking in a load of laundry on a regular basis is another option. Email volunteers cots-homeless. This boutique is not able to accept direct financial donations, but loves nothing more than kind donations of on-trend clothing please, no shoulder pads and donations of new packs of women's and men's underwear, boxer briefs, athletic and dress socks, camisoles and leggings.
Many clients are in their early 20s. If you have gently used clothing suitable for young men and women in the workplace no graphic t-shirts , these items certainly will be put to good use. Because we're going into fall and winter, summer clothing will soon be stored away. Items suitable for the colder months are what's needed right now. Drop off times on Friday, September 9th are Work Ready Apparel is not open to the public otherwise. Location is Corporate Circle, Petaluma There's plenty of parking and volunteers will be on hand to help you hand over armfuls of items!
I was so impressed by the effort that volunteer managers have put into this special place. What a treasure trove for those who have the strength to take the first steps to rebuilding their lives. A big thank-you to Susan and Richard Villa Susan's pictured with me, above for a perfectly suitable setting amidst the pines, redwoods and Eucalyptus of rustic West Petaluma, at the couple's fledgling event space, the enchanted Spring Hill Gardens.

The Farmer's Guild is an agricultural community founded by farmers for farmers who collaborate toward the economic viability of local agriculture as well as the social networks necessary to attract, cultivate and sustain a new generation ready to work the land while building a healthier food system. Back in , a handful of young farmers and ranchers convened over dinner to talk shop, trade ideas and share their experiences working to reform our agricultural system from the ground up.
New friendships, opportunities and partnerships hard to find in rural areas grew. This dynamic group soon multiplied. Chefs and local food advocates joined the mix, young farmers began arriving from neighboring counties. They soon outgrew the kitchen table and found an ally in FarmsReach , an online resource where farmers connect, share advice, and find the resources they need to succeed.
