Fashion Delivers seeks home textiles donations
Retail Editor 1 -- Home Textiles Today, November 6, 2012
New York - Fashion Delivers is working with local agencies in the Northeast to furnish families devastated by Hurricane Sandy with apparel, shoes and home goods.
The Home Fashion Products Association is reaching out to members of the home textiles industry to aid in the effort.
"We need a broad assortment of apparel for men, women and children, such as t-shirts, shirts, jeans, slacks, sweaters, outerwear and winter coats, sportswear, active wear, etc. Basic items such as underwear, socks, baseball caps, sneakers, boots and sleepwear are also needed. We also need home products, such as towels, blankets, sheets, pillows and pillow cases," the HFPA announced in a message to its members today.
The association noted temperatures are rapidly dropping in the Northeast, so winter-weight products are especially needed.
"Rest assured, that your product donations will quickly reach the victims for which they are intended and will help them cope with this tragedy," the HFPA wrote.
Product donations are being coordinated by Carla Fattal at Fashion Delivers. She can be reached at Carla@FashionDelivers.org or 646-786-2683.
