BRIEFLY: Steele launches Fair Wear Project

Steele launches Fair Wear Project 

Sarah Steele is launching a program in town that helps get free, fitting clothes to families in need without any stigma attached. This is how it works: people who bring in their used clothes to Bugs And Butterflies are given store credit. 

They then have the option to donate any portion of that store credit toward the Fair Wear Project, which will, once or twice a year, be tallied and divided into $25 gift cards. These gift cards will be given to nonprofits, such as Shelter From the Storm, qualified to distribute them to families in need.

To raise awareness about this project, Steele has organized a raffle. Raffle tickets may be purchased either with store credit or with cash, and the cost is $5 for three tickets. (Fifteen dollars buys nine tickets and a hand-printed canvas tote bag.) The raffle will be held at 11:30 a.m. Aug. 9, right outside Bugs and Butterflies. Steele said she is hoping to get all Fair Wear funds to families in need in time for back-to-school shopping. The raffle prizes are as follows: Looking Glass Books: gift certificate ($20); Mountain Works Bicycles: bike, ski, or snowboard tune-up ($30 value); Miller’s Home Center: gift card ($25); Sorbenots Coffee: six gift certificates ($30 total value); Claudson’s Sew & Soak: free repair labor (up to $80 in value); Raul’s Taqueria: two gift certificates ($20 total value); Direct Music Source: two free lessons ($50 value); Red Cross Drug: Scented Gift Basket (approximately $25 value); Jenesis Salon: one free haircut and polish change; Faerie Beads & Treasures: gift card ($10); Anytime Fitness: three-month membership with tanning ($245 value)

For more information, call Bugs and Butterflies at 541-963-2847.
