Swish and Duane Reade Collect over $800 In Donated Items for the Ali Forney Center, NYC

2012’s Give A Swish Collection Drive to benefit the Ali Forney Center was a smashing success! Created in partnership with Duane Reade and with an assist from The Gap’s Be What’s Possible volunteer initiative, Swish board members Kylie Edmond, Jamie Lloyd and Sue Sena staked out the front of Duane Reade’s 34th Street and 8th Avenue location armed with collection boxes, sign-up sheets, and enough positive energy to rival the glorious spring sunshine.

When the last item hit the box, we had collected $830 in toiletries, clothing, towels and sheets for AFC’s youth membership!

Special thanks to:
