Last month students from the Fashion Arts and Business program donated the $843.04 in proceeds they raised from their Eco Closet event to Youth Without Shelter. They were given a private tour of the facility from Mike Burnett, Community Engagement and Education Specialist of Youth Without Shelter. The event planning and budgeting fashion students selected this charity as they wish to give back to the community.
Youth Without Shelter (YWS) is an emergency residence and referral agency serving homeless youth. They are dedicated to providing shelter and support programs for homeless youth ages 16-24. They provide an independent shelter, committed to diverse client focused services, in a safe, nonjudgmental environment. Their programs enable youth to live responsibly and independently in society.
