Veronica and Vernon’s Closet

The John Howard Society of North Island (JHSNI) invites you to drop by the Activity Centre at the Campbell River Community Centre on Monday, April 11 from 3:30-6:30 p.m. for Veronica and Vernon’s Closet.

Are you a young person between the ages of 12 and 19?

Would you like a new-to-you outfit for free? The John Howard Society of North Island (JHSNI) invites you to drop by the Activity Centre at the Campbell River Community Centre on Monday, April 11 from 3:30-6:30 p.m. for Veronica and Vernon’s Closet.

Veronica and Vernon’s Closet is an event offering free clothing, shoes, and accessories for male and female youth. Hair styling and other “glam services” will also be offered for those who want to enhance their new look. A friendly barista will make specialty coffee drinks.

“Many teens cannot afford to purchase clothing for job interviews and other situations requiring a ‘dress for success’ approach,” said JHSNI Youth Outreach Worker Karen Robertson, who is organizing Veronica and Vernon’s Closet. “Our plan is to help youth increase their self-confidence by offering them a new outfit, haircut, and other ‘glam services’ at no charge.”

If you can donate clothing, please contact Karen at 250-286-0611 or karen@jhsni.bc.ca.
