UP to 1000 items of clothing are expected to be on sale at the Invercargill Next Rotary Generation (NRG) club’s one-day Pop-up Op Shop later this month.
President Leon Hartnett said the idea for the shop came from the Dunedin NRG group which made $5000 from its most recent one.
The Invercargill club would donate money raised from its shop to the Give Kids A Chance project and Fiji Relief, he said.
The Invercargill club, which has been established a year, had already received many quality garments, including donations of new clothing from an inner city designer label shop, he said.
Club member Rachel Butler said she had also received a suitcase of clothing from Brisbane, Australia, where she used to live, for the op shop.
Men’s, women’s and children’s clothing are still being collected for the shop. Donations can be dropped off at the Cornerstone Church on the corner of Clyde and Tay Sts.
‘‘To make it easier for people, there is a big box in the main entrance [for donations],’’ Mr Hartnett said.
Donations are being accepted from Tuesday to Friday, 9am-3pm, until Saturday, June 18.
The Pop-Up Op Shop will be open for one day only on Saturday, June 25, 19 Don St, 9am-6pm. All items of clothing are $5 each.
