On Saturday, July 18, 2015 the Tree Huggers teamed up with the MMS Service Learning Club and volunteered at Goodwill Goes GLAM. The event is Goodwill's annual fundraiser to support their mission of helping people with employment barriers reach their full potential and become self-sufficient.
The opportunity to support such a great cause took us away from the normal tree hugging events but still supported sustainability efforts as Goodwill's programs help to keep 12.5 million pounds out of our landfills every year.
The students helped to put price tags on the items, label the tags with sizes, and sort clothes for the retail event.
Tree Huggers also got a chance to shop at the event, get makeup advice, and meet Kini Zamora, local Project Runway star and the producer of this year's Goodwill Goes GLAM fashion show. We were all starstruck and lucky to have the opportunity to meet such a down to Earth, gracious, and talented designer.
Mahalo to all who shared their photos!
