New year, clean closet | Make a difference

Submitted by the Orcas Community Resource Center.

Are you interested in the idea of cleaning out your closet and making a difference? Now is a perfect time!

The Orcas Community Resource Center has an account at Sequel Consignment Shop in Eastsound. Our community needs your help as our balance is running low! Gently used clothing, shoes and accessories can be taken to Sequel with a request that any credit from those sales be placed on the Orcas Community Resource Center account.

Your gift allows us to assist clients with essential clothing for a job or interview, cold weather clothing, replacing clothing lost due to fire or flooding and more. While we do not have the means to store donated clothing, we were able to provide 24 individuals with much-needed clothing items in 2021 partnering with Sequel and the community. What a big help this is to islanders in need!

Please consider visiting Sequel at 434 Prune Alley in Eastsound. Their current hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. They are now accepting light winter and spring items as we look forward to the weather warming up again. You do not need an appointment to drop off items to donate towards OCRC’s account. As another way to help, you may also donate credit from your own consignment account to the OCRC account.

It’s time to channel your inner Marie Kwondo and sort through that closet! Thank you for supporting the Orcas Community Resource Center. If you’d like to learn more about OCRC and their services or make a donation, please visit
