The MCC rePurpose Centre is opening a 'pop-up shop' with affordable winter clothing for newcomers and lower-income families in Waterloo Region.
The Mennonite Central Committee, based in Elmira, says they will be pack and transport racks of clothing to Glencarin Church in Kitchener, where they plan to set up shop.
According to the MCC, the goal of the pop-up shop is to provide service to the community.
"We have seen how the rePurpose Centre has helped families with their bottom line and recognize transportation to Elmira can be a challenge," says Karen Davis, MCC rePurpose Retail Manager.
"Through partnerships with City of Kitchener Community Centres, independent food banks, shelters, and social service agencies, we are able to be where the need is." says Davis.
The pop-up shop will be open on September 26th and September 27th.
From noon till 8 p.m., residents can come buy winter coats, snow pants, sweaters and more.
All proceeds from the shop will go to other MCC projects, locally and internationally.
