TO PROVIDE SEASONAL CLOTHING AND BASIS NECESSITIES FOR PEOPLE IN NEED
The charity-shop is an organization that supports large families, social shelters and nursing homes by giving them seasonal clothing, household textiles and basic necessities. Every week they transfer clothes to social service centers in Yaroslavl, Tver, Novgorod, Voronezh, Smolensk, Ivanovo, Ryazan and other areas. Before transferring things are carefully sorted according to needs and undergo a manual quality control. They employ people from socially unprotected groups. These groups are not competitive in the open labor market, but thanks to getting a job, they can solve their social and living issues and acquire the necessary professional skills to increase the chances of finding a job and believe in themselves.
