Interupting this blog post to find Keiths Closet a new home!!!
Keith has been asked to vacate his warehouse he is desperately seeking a space in the Eastern suburbs to provide his service from. If you have any leads please contact me on 0408649798 or Keith on +61 451 220 227.
Whilst in lockdown I took the time to move my focus to how Argys can help our community. What does Argys have to offer? Clothes rv8ight! So I began looking for a charity we aligned with to donate clothes to. This was when I stumbled across a lessor known charity; Keiths Closet. Keiths Closet is an innovative free boutique that provides dignity-restoring clothing, shoes, toiletries and household items to men and women with mental illness. So far Keith has supported 1600 people- both in-patients and those living in the community.
Keith's Closet was the perfect fit for Argys. We wanted to support a cause close to our hearts and that was mental health. Sadly this is a growing issue in our society today. I also loved the fact that donating clothes to Keith meant Argys had a positive avenue to practice our values of sustainbility knowing that our donations would not end up as landfill. Lastly he was local, I wanted to support the community around us because I feel this is where we can make the greatest impact. So I sent him a cold email offering our services to his clients as well as a pipedream dream of my own charity. I woke up to a reply the next morning "What an incredible email to receive, thank you!" We scheduled a zoom catch up and the rest is history. We are currently working on looking at ways to provide up-skill classes for his clients in the future. The possibilities are endless and we cannot wait to get stuck in working with Keiths Closet.
Keith is currently nominated for a Westfield Local Hero Award although voting has closed we wish him the best of luck!
