It’s a Girl Thing!

May 5, 2009

Recently, Phoenix Rescue Mission joined forces with Xavier High School for their “It’s a Girl Thing!” free clothing event at Rowdy Boutique on 7th Street. The event offered a small group of girls from Carl Hayden High School the chance to “shop” for donated clothes, shoes, jewelry, accessories and room decor. Rowdy Boutique not only provided the venue, but also donated a bunch of new clothing for the girls. The girls of Xavier said they wanted to “do what they know” to help other girls in the community.

I had to share this letter the Mission received from Maria Torrez, Carl Hayden’s Family Support Specialist who attended the event with the girls,

“I want to thank you for allowing us to have Carl Hayden High School students participate in the “It’s a Girl Thing!” gifting of teenage girls clothing and more. We had 14 girls participate and they all were extremely happy for getting the opportunity to receive clothes and shoes, purses, belts, plus. They all had comments like, “OMG Mrs. Torrez I got all brand name clothes.” “They had so much stuff it looked like a fancy store.” “Everyone was so nice to us” “My mom got to pick out things and she was so happy because she never gets a chance to buy anything for herself.” They said to please thank everyone concerned for this super-nice experience.”
