Out With the Old, In With Dream Closet

When: November 20th

Where: Engagement Center in Somsen Hall

Time: 12:00-3:00pm

As the summer weather ends and we transition into fall, there is no better time to clean out your overflowing closet. Instead of stuffing everything into a bag and tossing it aside, donate your gently used apparel to DREAM CLOSET.

Dream Closet is an expense-free shopping experience for the local Winona community. It is a student-generated group from Winona State University that strives to provide the community with quality clothing through donations.

Founder of Dream Closet, Kylen Feltes, states, “The organization is founded on the idea that University students have the knowledge and expertise to gift to their community in means of an event to clothe the community. Dream Closet not only addresses the issue of clothing those in need – it also brings positivity, encouragement, and friendship to those who attend Dream Closet Events. We are not just in the clothing business, we are in the people business. Our mission, simply put, is to bring joy.”

Dream closet needs YOU! We are seeking clothing donations for this amazing event on November 20th.  Donate your gently used clothes for other local community members. All types of clothing are accepted whether it be athletic, casual, or professional wear. Clothing is available for all ages, styles and gender. There are no limitations with Dream Closet.
