|"Thank you for blessing me with clothing."|
There are so many easy and inexpensive ways to help women in need in our community. Won't you consider one of the following? Or share with us your own great ideas!
Share our story with your friends – they might know a woman in need of Wings services, or they might enjoy donating their clothing – your help in raising our awareness in the community is of enormous benefit to us.
Not all of our needs are for clothing! We can always use office supplies such as reams of paper, stamps, paper towels, and bottles of water. If you use it, chances are we use it, too, and can benefit from having it donated. Also Staples gift cards are greatly appreciated and will be put to good use!
When you see a phenomenal sale on items we require new (undergarments, trouser socks, etc), consider picking up an extra pair or two for Wings.
|“I was so excited by the women who helped me. The reaction to the clothing they picked out was so great. So encouraging. They all went out of their way to make sure I had ALL my needs met. Thank you! Thank you, Wings!”|
Undertake a collection drive of unused/unopened make-up, skin and hair care products. Even the small toiletries from hotels are treats welcomed by our clients.
Have extra points from your credit card or retail store rewards programs? Consider applying them to gift cards for Wings.
Attend one of our fundraisers – our events keep growing as our community learns of our mission.
Make a monetary gift in memory or in honor of someone – Wings can be a particularly meaningful way to honor an important woman in your life.
Host a themed party -- a Bra-lapalooza -- or celebrate your own birthday and instead of gifts, ask your guests to donate new undergarments for Wings.

Provide vouchers from a local cab or limo company that will underwrite client transportation (round trip from Coatesville to Wings, or from West Chester to Wings would be ideal).
Offer an auction item or basket to our fall Fundraising event. Assembling a themed raffle basket can be a lot of fun and generates much excitement at our annual silent auction.
Financial contribution – many times we need to augment the donated clothing with purchased clothing to accommodate our clients’ needs – women of all ages and body types appreciate the opportunity to feel professional and stylish.
Financial contribution – oh, and we need to keep the lights on, too! – as with any business, we have operational needs that can only be underwritten with monetary donations.
Have your High School Senior plan a fundraising event to benefit Wings for Success for their Senior Project – planning a concert, talent show, fashion show, etc – is a great learning experience and we’d be happy to provide support.
Thank you for your interest in supporting women in our community!
