The perfect fit
Doesn’t it feel good when you find the perfect shirt to wear to work or a pair of shoes that are just right for you? That’s the feeling we want our shoppers to have in StyleXchange. We offer high-quality, like-new clothing for all members of the family, including new socks and undies, at no cost. StyleXchange has a great selection for all the things life might throw your way – growing kids, a job interview, a first date, or your first Minnesota winter. StyleXchange enables shoppers at Valley Outreach to express their individual styles while feeling comfortable and prepared. A new shopper recently declared, “It looks just like a TJ Maxx in here! This is so cool.”
Easy to shop
According to Hannah Sutcliffe, StyleXchange manager, “Everything about the experience in StyleXchange is rooted in choice and flexibility, which takes a lot of pressure off shoppers. Client shoppers can come as often they like to look for clothing as their needs shift. Because we use a points system to distribute items, clients can tailor their visit to their unique situation and select just what they need and nothing that they don’t
We need volunteers like you
Volunteers make every step of the process possible, not to mention fun! They sort through the generous mountain of donations we receive, make sure everything is in excellent condition, run the registers in the store, assist clients, keep the store stocked and looking beautiful. If this sounds good to you, we invite you to join our StyleXchange volunteers. With the increase in shoppers, we need your help now more than ever. Hannah says, “Everyone has a special talent and energy that they bring to the work, and it’s a gift to see how the volunteers put their spin on the tasks. The result of our volunteers’ hard work in StyleXchange is an incredibly vibrant space – a place people are excited to visit and spend time in.”
Last year, about 1,500 unique households received clothing from StyleXchange more than double the previous 4 years’ average of 630 families. We distributed more than 76,600 items, including 18,745 pairs of new socks and underwear.– Valley Outreach Annual Impact Report 2020/2021
