Volunteer with the Fall Fashion Free for All

June 30, 2019

The Fall Fashion Free-For-All (FFFFA) is a Women’s League public service project that provides gently used clothing to a targeted population of MIT undergraduates. And we are looking for volunteers!

While the FFFFA's big clothing event happens in the fall, preparing for the event is an ongoing, yearround effort of collecting, sorting and preparing donations. We are looking for assistance with sorting a veritable mountain of clothing that arrives in our space at the FX in early June. Shortly after graduation, we receive items donated from all of the dorms. Last year, we processed 3 tons of apparel, shoes, and accessories over four fun and busy weeks!

Additionally, we are looking for assistance with prepping the items that are set aside. This involves laundering, sewing on buttons, etc., and these tasks do not require being at MIT. We can deliver these times to you to be processed at times convenient for you prior to the event in mid-October. And, as always, we are looking for age appropriate clothing donations, specifically winter wear and business casual fashions. Donations can be dropped in the Women’s League office, or at the FFFFA drop boxes at the FX. Pick-ups at a mutually convenient time and place can be arranged.

Sorting clothing will take place at the Furniture Exchange (FX) 350 Brookline Street, MIT Building WW15-182. Please contact Mary DesPrez, charlesbridge@comcast.net, for further information.
