Family Renew Fundraiser Hosted by The Fashion Safari


In recognition of Make A Difference Day, The Fashion Safari is hosting a Fundraiser to benefit Family Renew Community. Here's your chance to get involved and change lives in Volusia County. The Fashion Safari will be collecting donations for Family Renew Community on Saturday, October 27 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We also pledge to make a cash donation in the amount of 50% of Saturday's net profits from sales to help support Family Renew.
Family Renew Community considers homelessness in Volusia County to be a problem worthy of major concern. Their goal is to unite people from diverse backgrounds and circumstances to end homelessness among families with children in our community. They house 32 families at their facilities, three residential campuses in Daytona Beach, DeLand and Holly Hill. Families are expected to work and save toward their goals and to remain drug- and alcohol-free. The purpose is to achieve both permanent housing and self-sufficiency.

Cash Donations
Checks may be made out to Family Renew Community, Inc., and mailed to: P.O. Box 250123
Holly Hill, FL 32125 (You can also drop off checks or cash at The Fashion Safari all day Saturday)
Merchandise Donations
Family Renew Community Store (The Secret Attic Thrift Store) accepts all merchandise donations. It’s a large store with furniture, small household items, clothing, etc. The store is located at: 32 N. Ocean Shore Boulevard (A1A),Ormond Beach, FL 32176 (behind TGI Fridays). Tel. 386-615-3837

The Fashion Safari will accept small household items, clothing, toiletries, etc. for donation all day Saturday. Just make sure your items are either boxed or bagged and labelled "Family Renew". The housing units are in desperate need of new household items (such as toilet tissue, paper towels, napkins, etc.) in addition to personal items (such as shampoo, bath soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, sanitary napkins, deodorant, etc.) These are items that you probably already have in your home and it wouldn't take much effort to gather them up. Please take a few minutes to just look in your closets and under your kitchen and bathroom sinks (if you are unable to go out and purchase these items). Any donation, large or small, would be greatly appreciated.

Please note that due to our space restrictions, we are unable to take in large furniture items, but you can call Family Renew at 386-615-3837 to arrange for pick up.

I truly believe, that by working together for the good of our community, we can help put an end to homelessness and really Make A Difference if we all pitch in and make a donation this Saturday.

With Sincere Appreciation,
Rosalie Shapiro/Owner of The Fashion Safari
