The Clothes Horse Celebrates JLH Programs and Projects
By Andrea Barton Reeves
The Clothes Horse, located on Park Road in West Hartford, is the League's longest-running fundraising program, generating over $30,000 every year to support JLH programs and projects. Much more than a thrift store, the Clothes Horse offers designer clothing at great prices, as well as unique jewelry, vintage clothing, prom dresses, shoes, classic books, housewares and other special finds that delight many returning customers. Funds generated by Clothes Horse sales help fund many of the Junior League’s programs and projects and help support the League's operating expenses.
In addition to selling great clothes and other items, the Clothes Horse accepts a limited number of vouchers each year to help men and women reentering the workforce to purchase clothing for job interviews. JLH also partners with Stackpole, Moore, Tryon in Hartford in our successful trade-in event. Stackpole customers bring in clothing to donate to the Clothes Horse and in return, receive a 15% discount on new purchases. Watch for your postcard in the mail (and the League's website) announcing this year's event dates and times.
Every League member is asked to support the Clothes Horse by donating at least $75 worth of clothing and other salable items in excellent condition and work three hours during the League year at the store. Help is needed especially during the fall and spring changeover events, when the racks are cleared to make way for new seasonal clothing.
Support the Clothes Horse and continue to make it a success!
