From October 28 – November 17, 2012, Evelyn & Arthur’s new Estero location in the Coconut Point Mall will collect gently used clothing and accessories as part of a donation drive for Hope Hospice. Merchandise collected at this Evelyn & Arthur location will be resold at Hope Chest, supporting programs and services that Hope provides to patients and families throughout Southwest Florida, regardless of their ability to pay.

This will be the second year that Evelyn & Arthur has partnered with Hope Hospice. Their first donation drive proved to be a huge success with shoppers donating carloads of clothing and accessories.

“We were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support the community showed for our first donation drive,” said Adrianne Weissman, president of Evelyn & Arthur. “We ended up extending the donation drive as shoppers continued to bring in donations day after day. We are incredibly grateful to our shoppers for their compassion and caring to support families at a time of great need.”

Those interested in supporting this donation drive are encouraged to bring gently used clothing and accessories to Evelyn & Arthur in Estero. Those who bring in donations will be treated to 10% off Evelyn & Arthur brand merchandise —  the offer is good until December 15, 2012.
