Bixby Knolls Bra-Fitting Shop Collects Bra Donations For “Support Your Sisters Bra Drive”
2015-11-03 · By Editor
Lucy’s Boudoir, a local bra-fitting shop in Bixby Knolls, is collecting new bras and underwear for the 2015 Support Your Sisters Bra Drive. Lucy’s Boudoir will be donating to the Women’s Shelter of Long Beach, New Life Beginnings, and the Lydia House.
Owner Michelle Jouvence found that many of her customers were throwing away perfectly good bras they had bought prior to their visit, simply because they weren’t a perfect fit. This discovery became an opportunity to give back to the community and put these new and gently used bras to good use. Since 2012, The Support Your Sisters Bra Donation Drive has raised over 600 bras and changed the lives of those who had to leave everything behind.
Along with donating bras, the boutique also provides professional bra-fitters to properly fit ladies at the shelter. The employees at Lucy’s Boudoir believe that a properly fitting bra positively impacts a woman’s confidence, posture, appearance, and overall wellbeing. Tonya Hubbard, New Life Program Supervisor for the Lydia House, shares her experience from last year’s bra drive.
“What a blessing this drive has been for our clients. Many of our clients come to the Lydia House shelter empty handed with only the clothes they wear. Due to the compassionate hearts at Lucy’s Boudoir, we are able to provide much needed undergarments to homeless women in need, during a most trying time in their life. It means more to them than we can express. Thank you for all you do!” –Tonya Hubbard, Lydia House.
By December 11th women can donate their new or gently used bras and new underwear donations to Lucy’s Boudoir at 3925 Long Beach Blvd, during business hours (Tuesday-Friday 11am-6pm and Saturday 11am-5pm). Any monetary donations will be used to purchase new undergarments.
