Earl Warren Teen Korps member leading clothing donation drive

Laila Voss, Earl Warren Middle School student and Teen Korps member, with Mary Anne Nuskin, EWMS principal

Laila Voss, Earl Warren Middle School eighth-grader and EWMS Teen Korps member, is leading a teen girls’ clothing donation drive and two Teen Korps community service events in support of My Girlfriend’s Closet during February.

My Girlfriend’s Closet (www.mygirlfriendscloset.info) is a San Diego-based nonprofit organization that collects quality, gently used clothing from teen girls in the greater San Diego area who can afford quality clothing and distributes it to teen girls who are homeless, in foster care, or otherwise economically disadvantaged. By offering stylish clothing free, in a pleasant, boutique-like “shopping” environment, My Girlfriend’s Closet provides a unique wardrobe resource that aims at helping these girls feel more self-confident and comfortable in their schools and communities.

Students and community members can donate gently used, clean clothing for teen girls ages 13-22 by placing it in a bag (trash bags are fine) and bringing it to the bin in the EWMS front office (155 Stevens Avenue in Solana Beach) from Tuesday, Feb. 19 through Friday, Feb. 22 during school hours (7:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.).

In addition to the clothing donation drive, EWMS Teen Korps members are participating in two service events in support of My Girlfriend’s Closet — the first on Feb. 23, when they’ll help sort the donated clothing, and the second on March 3, when they’ll help distribute the donated clothing to the girls in need. Laila Voss and her mom, Deborah Chew, will lead these events for EWMS Teen Korps and its members.
