[ARCHIVED] Councilwoman Waldman Honors Judy’s Closet Volunteers and Supporters

Councilwoman Judy Waldman’s program, Judy’s Closet, has helped hundreds of people in our community who needed, but could not afford, essential clothing for a job interview, graduation or prom. The program, which primarily serves graduating students from the South Dade Skills Center, could not be possible without the help of volunteers and donors who provide and distribute the collection of gently-used and new formal clothing for those who need it.

At a special presentation during the August Homestead City Council meeting, Councilwoman Waldman showed her appreciation to those supporters who make the program possible by presenting Certificates of Appreciation and honoring their efforts.

“I am truly grateful to each and every one of you for allowing this project to grow and continue to provide the clothing that so many people, who are going through a difficult economic situation, need for an important life event,” said Councilwoman Waldman during the special presentation. “We really make a difference in the life of many! Judy’s Closet started as my dream and it has continued thanks to the people who believe in it and who have been there to help distribute, to make a drive and to bring donations. Thank you.”
Judy’s Closet began in earnest from donations from Councilwoman Waldman herself. It has expanded with contributions from the community and works cooperatively with other community-based organizations. Participating in life-shaping events has an immeasurable impact on a life, and Judy’s Closet has set out to provide the bridge between donor and recipient. If you are in need of clothes or have clothes to donate, please contact Councilwoman Waldman’s office at (305) 224-4454 to schedule an appointment. Judy’s Closet is located at the South Dade Skills Center, 28300 SW 152 Avenue, as well as the William F. Brantley Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 13.
