Fashion Show Fights Hunger in Quebec

Sherbrooke Community Church raises $1,625 to provide food to individuals and families in need.

November 15, 2012


Sherbrooke Community Church, Que., held a fashion show in October to raise money for the corps’ soup kitchen. The event was the brainchild of Sylvie Genesse, a volunteer who organized the show.

The collection of clothing presented at the fashion show was as varied as it was creative, using new and gently used clothing from The Salvation Army’s thrift store in Sherbrooke.

“This event highlighted our recycled products,” says Lieutenant Anne-Marie Racicot, corps officer. “As our organizing team was able to show, the clothes we accept at the thrift store are in good condition and wear well.”

This popular community event raised $1,625, which will be used to provide food to individuals and families in need in the region.

“Beyond raising money, the fashion show bolstered the pride and self-esteem of our volunteers and young people who participated in the event,” says Lieutenant Claude Dagenais, corps officer.
