Do you know someone in need of free winter clothes? Scarves, hats, coats?
Saturday and Sunday, November 18 and 19 from 8am to 5pm, CrossFit York will host the York Pop-up Shop, organized by Sam Fullam.
Regular workouts will remain scheduled that weekend.
Sam’s goal is to help those in need before winter hits. And plenty of people have more than they need, so the shop will redistribute the plenty to people who have less.
So far Samantha has collected 100 bags of donated clothing. She estimates she’ll have over 250 bags of clothing to redistribute during the Pop-up Shop. These bags include men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing along with hygiene products. She’s had 150 people help her collect clothes and sort them throughout this project.
The event is being held for anyone in our community who may benefit from donated items. Sam said, “Anyone is welcome.”
If you’re thinking that her name sounds familiar, that’s because she’s Joe Fullam’s (THE Joe) oldest daughter. She’s also running for Hallam Borough council. So if you live in Hallam Borough, consider a vote for Samantha on November 7th. Samantha said, “Community engagement is important to me. A community that is engaged is safer, happier, and overall more efficient in making decisions that better its residents. I want to see the people of Hallam using our parks and talking to their neighbors more. My goal is to strengthen the connection between the people of the borough, the local small businesses, and the local government.” Clearly, from the work that she’s doing to help others, her heart and hands are committed to strengthening community.
