Last week, the CAAC in partnership with LifeWay Network and St. Raymond’s High School for Boys began construction of the Cabrini Closet, NYC. The boys receive training on human trafficking and then they performed the service of transforming an open space into a beautiful boutique. In total, approximately 84 boys will participate in this program. The closet will provide fashionable young women’s clothing to those who very often have nothing after leaving their trafficked situation. After three sessions, the closet is on schedule to be open early May in the Grammercy Park area of Manhattan. More information on the location of the closet will be forthcoming in the near future.
This closet will certainly be a beautiful ministry, which will provide a much-needed service to those who are beginning a new life of freedom.
Any member of the Cabrinian Community who is interested in volunteering to help at the closet is invited to contact Melanie Paccillo at CabriniAandA@aol.com or Karol Brewer at firstname.lastname@example.org
Information for anyone wishing to donate clothing or gift cards will follow in the future Weekly Updates. We expect to be able to accept donations by May 1st.
