At an Oct. 11 press conference, the Encinitas Community Resource Center (CRC) reported that an impressive 3,010 items were collected as the result of a gently-used clothing drive held in conjunction with TRE Boutique.
The drive, held from Sept. 12 through Oct. 5, encouraged local residents to donate their items at the TRE store locations in Del Mar, Encinitas and Pacific Highlands Ranch.
“We are so pleased to see the community support of the CRC/TRE Boutique clothing drive,” Isabel St.Germain Singh, CRC’s chief executive officer said in a news release. “The items collected will directly benefit victims of domestic violence and CRC’s program for domestic violence prevention and intervention.”
Speakers at the event included St.Germain Singh, Chairman of CRC’s Board of Directors Morgan Day, owner of TRE Boutique Sheree Vihon and County Supervisor Dave Roberts.
“Look what can happen when a family-owned business and its customers want to make a difference,” Roberts said. “Look at the size of this donation! This is a community that cares and is united against domestic violence.”
