Women’s clothing company to outfit 75 homeless women


A women’s clothing company will provide five articles of clothing apiece to 75 patrons of Dégagé Ministries.

The nonprofit Dégagé Ministries said that from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, May 13, at Dégagé’s third floor Open Door Women’s Center, at 144 S. Division Ave. in downtown Grand Rapids, the women’s clothing company cabi will provide up to five articles of free clothing or accessories to 75 women.

The giveaway is funded by the Heart of cabi Foundation and is part of Heart of cabi Foundation Week, during which cabi stylists from around the world host donation events to support women in need in their communities.

Launched in 2002, cabi provides a designer women’s clothing collection and is the nation’s largest social selling apparel company. The brand has a network of U.S. and Canadian stylists who offer a shopping experience filled with personalized styling ideas. The company also provides business loans for women in the developing world through Opportunity International.

“We want to thank our wonderful friends at cabi for blessing the women of Dégagé with beautiful clothing and accessories,” said Thelma Ensink, executive director at Dégagé. “These gifts encourage women facing homelessness and poverty and empower them to feel confident as they work toward their goals. We are so grateful for their partnership in this important mission.”

Margaret Tuori, a cabi stylist, said cabi is “honored to partner with Dégagé to support their wonderful work in our community.”

“As a cabi stylist, I’m proud to be a part of a company that cares so deeply for women in our local community,” she said.
