Following a sizable clothing donation from the film industry, Harvest Project is set to raise money while getting North Shore residents fitted into some fresh new outfits during an upcoming pop-up event.
The North Vancouver charity is hosting its Holiday Pop-Up this Thursday through Sunday (Dec. 10-13) at 1025 Marine Dr., inside the refurbished space that was formerly occupied by Indigo Books.
In a bid to downsize its vast wardrobe collection, CBS’s television productions unit, which does a lot of filming throughout the Lower Mainland, has donated 2,000 new and gently used clothing items to Harvest Project.
The organization will be selling the clothing items, all culled from local television productions, for up to $10 a piece. Funds raised will go back to Harvest Project and support its myriad programs, including its COVID-19-era gift-card program which provides grocery money for those in need of a little extra support on the North Shore.
“We think that at $10 an item, we think it’s a good deal. We know that a lot of people out there are suffering with finances and everything else. It’s an opportunity to get good quality items at a reasonable price,” said Philippe Segur, support program co-ordinator at Harvest Project.
The owner of the building on Marine Drive where the four-day pop-up is taking place sponsored the room for the event by offering 4,500-square-feet of retail space, according to Segur.
