Giving Back through Seattle Women’s Assistance Fund (SWAF)

The holiday season is a time of giving - to our loved ones and also our community. Throughout the year Two Big Blondes is able to donate free clothing to homeless and low-income Seattle area residents through the donations of consignors. The joy and appreciate we receive from SWAF clients is a great experience every week!

During the winter, most clients are in need of warm and waterproof coats, but the clothing being donated has often come in throughout the summer. Bring in coats that you no longer wear but don't want to consign, so we can continue our annual coat drive. In addition we've been able to provide toiletries to all of our clients through donations from you all! Needs include toothbrushes, razors, deodorant, tissues, feminine supplies and perfumes.

We plan on having special SWAF grab bags for sale during our Annual Holiday Storewide Sale that will support the program as well.
Last but not least you can donate directly through PayPal Giving Fund. We will get a 1% bonus for giving during #GivingTuesday on Tuesday, December 3rd, but of course donations are accepted at any time. We'll be using the money generated this month for the special holiday gifts. Monetary gifts throughout the year allow us to purchase job interview outfits & job-appropriate attire for clients.
All donors to SWAF in November & December will be entered in our raffle drawing for two $25 and one $50 Two Big Blondes gift certificate! Drawing will occur the first week of January 2020. Thank you for your year-round support!!
