Event Description

Come enjoy a night of guilt free "shopping" and contribute to two great causes!

WHAT IS A CLOTHING SWAP?
A clothing swap is a great way for us to put our new, nearly new or gently used wardrobe items, that we no longer wear, to good use!

THE RULES OF THE SWAP:
Please bring a maximum of 5 clothing swap items, as detailed below, and one pair of Jeans (optional) to the event with the intention that someone else will take them home and wear them. *Take the time to go through your closet and determine which items are not right for your color tone or body shape. Be sure the item is worthy to pass along to one of our group of fabulous ladies!!*All items must be new, like new or gently worn. Should be clean and pressed. We want to simulate a true shopping experience!

*Items can be for any season. Summer pieces are still fine and Fall and Winter are great!

5 CLOTHING ITEMS:
*Not required, but helpful if you bring the 5 items as noted below.
• Bring 3 clothing items in any category -Chic, Moderate, Expensive
Chic – inexpensive items, less than $40.00, costume jewelry.
Moderate- any clothing items priced between $50.00 - $150.00. Moderately priced jewelry. Clothes from the Gap, JCrew.
Expensive- any clothing items or accessories valued over $150.00 - $200.00. Designer.

Bring 2 accessories: -purses, jewelry, hats, belts or shoes.
*How it works:
You will be given a color coded ticket for each category item you bring, and one Jean Swap ticket if you bring a pair of jeans. You will "shop" in each category “boutique” and select an item for yourself. If you bring 2 chic items and 3 expensive then, in turn, you can shop for 2 chic and 3 expensive items. Continue shopping each boutique until your tickets are gone!

Bring a couple items to donate to STRIVE New Haven and help women who are seeking employment with appropriate career clothing. You can bring one gently used purse, pair of shoes, a suit, slacks or a blouse. Thank you!!

Rethinking Ways to Get Capital to Small Businesses

The pandemic has prodded state and local governments to think hard and act quickly to move public money into shoring up the small business sector. An article in Next City looks at how new public-private partnerships—particularly ones engaging CDFIs, like the LISC-managed NY Forward Loan Fund—are paving the way to make equitable small business development part of a new normal.

Partnership Means Being Prepared

In the era of Covid-19, connected ecosystems are paying off for small businesses struggling to keep their doors open. Which proves just how critical LISC’s ongoing work to build relationships that support economic development really is, in times of crisis and beyond.

For Six Years Running, LISC is Recognized as an ImpactAssets 50

LISC has been named one of the ImpactAssets 50, a who’s-who of fund managers dedicated to creating positive social and environmental impact. LISC is one of seven community development financial institutions (CDFIs) that were selected for this year’s IA 50, reflecting the critical role CDFIs have played during the COVID-19 pandemic.
