The local Working Wardrobes headquarters in Irvine, California burned down this last weekend. They are a career development non-profit that provides professional clothing and training for at-risk people to help them get work. Can't get a job without looking sharp for an interview, can't look sharp without a job. A lot was lost in the fire, but the mission remains!
If you are in the area, we are collecting clothing at multiple locations throughout Orange County. Hit me up for details!
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
