For the fourth year, the Women’s Center at Shawnee State University will sponsor “My Sister’s Closet Boutique” on Monday, Oct. 3 through Friday, Oct. 7 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the basement of Massie Hall, Room 019.
The boutique is open to the public and will feature gently used clothing, jewelry, purses, shoes and other accessories as well as knick knacks and household items. All the items were donated by SSU employees, students and community members. This year’s boutique will also feature a designer purse silent auction all day on Friday.
“This is a great way for our employees to clean out their home closets while benefiting the SSU Mobile Health Unit, the Pike County Domestic Violence Shelter, and St. Vincent de Paul church at the same time,” said Mistie Spicer, assistant to the president who coordinates the boutique for the Women’s Center.
Proceeds from the boutique will go to help maintain the Mobile Health Unit which allows SSU students to provide health screenings for those in need throughout the region. Donations are welcome and can be dropped off at the Women’s Center during boutique hours. Spicer said any unsold clothing will be donated to the Pike County Domestic Violence Shelter and St. Vincent de Paul’s Church.
The SSU Mobile Health Unit is a mobile medical facility with two exam rooms, video equipment and two staff nurse practitioners. The unit serves five counties including Adams, Lawrence and Scioto counties in Ohio and Carter and Greenup counties in Kentucky. SSU nursing students perform a number of screenings at locations throughout the service area.
The public is invited to shop at the boutique and parking is available behind Massie Hall near the back entrance where the office of University Outreach Services is located.
