JRA holds giant used clothing sale

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

Usually, the Jewish Relief Agency's Northeast Philadelphia is filled with food to be delivered to needy families. But this weekend, the agency is switching gears and holding a giant used clothing sale.

Amy Krulik, Executive Director of the Jewish Relief Agency explains, "In this economy, it's especially important to have access to low-cost items. So, we are accepting clothing and are now making it available as a one-day sale, that's open to the general public."

The sale will held at JRA's warehouse at 10980 Dutton Road in Northeast Philadelphia from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Prices are rock-bottom -- even in the designer boutique area.

Dozens of pairs of ladies shoes from Ferragamo and Stuart Weitzman will be sold for $10. Ten bucks could also net you a Coach bag.

Women's suits from Christian Dior, Ann Taylor and Harve Benard are $15.

Men's and Ladies' tops from names including Armani and Lilly Pulitzer are just $8.

All children's clothing items are just $1, even if you dig into the piles on the tables and find a Lilly sundress or Benetton sweater.

On the teen table -- a Juicy Couture "T" for $3 and Abercrombie jeans for $5.

"The proceesds from the sale will go directly to support our food program," Krulik explains. "Making it possible for us to continue the hunger relief efforts that we do on a monthly basis."

Last year, the JRA delivered a half-million pounds of food to about 28-hundred families in the Tri-State area. Noone, regardless of background, is turned away.

"Anybody who calls us and asks for our help, we are happy to help them," Krulik says.
