At this year's TEDxEastVan event, we will be teaming up with the Move Share Care Network to help provide clean, warm clothing to local people in need. With summer coming to an end and the temperatures set to drop it’s important to remember those who might be sleeping in the rough.
Who are the Move Share Care Network
Inspired by the abundance of unused clothing created by the ‘fast fashion’ industry the Move Share Care network’s has been collecting and distributing clothing donations since 2012 via the First United Church. Their goal is to collect, sort, stock and redistribute directly to the communities in need.
What you can bring
At our event on September 16th, the Move Share Care Network will be there to accept donations from the following list:
- coats or jackets
- BRAND NEW under garments
- BRAND NEW hygiene products (ie. toothbrush, toothpaste, soap)
This is just one of the many great ways TEDxEastVan aims to give back to the community. To find out more ways you can give back check out our Pay it Forward campaign and our Green Initiative.
