On November 29th, Whitney Young Health hosted a one-day boutique giving away FREE gently-used clothing, household items, children clothing and toys to local members of the Albany community. All the items available for this event were donated by WYH employees. The day coincided with #GivingTuesday, a day geared towards charitable giving at the start of the holiday season.
Before the boutique opened up at 10am, a long line was formed outside the old FACTS building in anticipation for the shopping extravaganza. Each room was designated towards specific items such as, children toys, kid's clothing, housewares, shoes, and men and women's clothing. By the end of the day, over 200 people attended and we were basically cleaned out! While Whitney Young Health provides healthcare to patients each and every day, it was a wonderful opportunity to go the extra mile when it comes to giving.
Thank you to our Customer Service Committee for putting on this inspiring event and volunteering at the boutique to make sure each and every person left with something they needed and wanted. What a great way to start the holiday season.
