Rylee writes: I have been volunteering at my local CRC Resale Store in San Marcos for the past 6 Months and I have made some of the best memories in my high school career with some of the most amazing people Ms. Mary and Ms. Diane. I always look forward to seeing them and getting the chance to sing, sort, hang and tag the donated clothing. I have enjoyed every second of it and wanted to connect my Gold Award project to help support and promote the CRC cause. Volunteering has introduced me to the amount of work that goes into maintaining a resale store and the potential that second-hand clothing has for those in my community and globally. I wanted to help my community to become more familiar with the idea of donating clothing instead of trashing it. I continue to educate myself and influence others through My Gold Award to volunteer, donate, and support a local CRC to help the cycle of giving clothing a new life continue!
