Impact Locally, a non-profit organization has opened a Denver boutique but it’s missing something that stores typically have: a cash register. Why? To help clothe the homeless population, free of charge.
On March 20, a new clothing store opened in Denver. Now, this probably doesn’t sound very exciting. After all, stores open and close every day. But what if I told you that this wasn’t your ordinary boutique, that it’s considered to be the first of its kind? Created by local non-profit Impact Locally, the Denver boutique offers the homeless population something they desperately need: clothes.
What makes it different is that everything is free. That’s right. The “Humanity” boutique doesn’t charge for its items.
Before and after as we move everything into Humanity – Impact's Free Clothing Store for the Homeless. To learn more go to www.Impactlocally.orgTo donate go to www.gofundme.com/impacthumanity
Located along Welton Street in Five Points, the small, one-room store is open Tuesday through Thursday, from noon to 5 p.m., and is there for anyone in need to walk in, pick out some clothes, and leave.
“There has never been a store like this before… This store not only gives individuals access to clothing like they’ve never had before but also helps to restore their dignity by providing an experience like you would find in any other clothing store,” Impact Locally said in a statement.
Humanity is run by volunteers and relies on donations from the public to keep afloat. If you’d like to donate clothes, money, or your time, please click here.
