The Northwest Market partners with the Bloomin' Boutique throughout the year to make donations of new clothing to the organization. Their story follows -- and we hope you will give generously. We always have bins at the show for donations. We adore helping and working with them. You will not find a better group of dedicated people to make this happen for kids! Thank you! Be sure to contact Patti (email below) if you want to UPS to her. She has made special arrangements with UPS and it will be at no cost to you.
Bloomin' Boutique is a non-profit organization dedicated to giving a hand up by providing new clothing, shoes, bedding and personal care items to underprivileged children, empowering them to become confident, constructive members of their communities.
Bloomin' Boutique provides foster and underprivileged youth new clothing and other items to the extent made possible by your generous donations. We cover boys and girls of all ages infant through 18 years. Using a referral process, we partner with other community organizations and agencies to provide these services; we do not accept fulfillment requests directly from families or individuals.
Open by appointment only to middle and high school students accompanied by their advocate, each child receives the individual attention that they deserve. Upon entering this ever-changing emporium filled with beautiful clothes in all sizes, each child "goes shopping," selecting and trying on the clothes of their choosing. These one-on-one shopping experiences are incredibly rewarding - both to the child and the volunteers helping them with their choices! For some children, these are the first new clothes they have ever worn or the first shopping experience they have ever had.
Your donations make a difference!
Bloomin' Boutique always appreciates new clothing donations including shoes, socks, underwear, pajamas, pants, shirts, hoodies, coats, gloves, hats, dresses, skirts and scarves. Other items needed are backpacks, toiletries, bedding/pillows, toys/games and school supplies. Cash donations are used to purchase items we are short of - or special needs items such as larger sized shoes and clothing.
