Wednesday, March 8th was International Women’s Day. To celebrate. many organizations around San Francisco held events. St. Anthony’s is an organization that’s been around since 1950. They offer meals, medical and social services, and have a clothing “store” where guests of St. Anthony’s can go once a month and get much needed clothing, accessories, and hygiene products. For International Women’s Day, they held a special event in the clothing store that included bra fittings done by Third Love (who's bras I personally wear and love), and lots of fun retail therapy for homeless and low-income women.
On Saturday, March 4th, I joined the St. Anthony’s Young Professional Council to help sort clothing and get ready for their event. It was a really fun day, and it was a great feeling to be of service. As a clothing designer and fashion lover, I know how good a new outfit can make a woman feel, so it was really special to me to be able to help out with such an amazing organization and event. If you want to learn more about St. Anthony’s and how to help and get involved, check out their website here.
Here’s some photos from the event last Saturday
