Give to the Public Defender's Clothes Closet DriveIf you're in the Orlando area, take a few minutes to dig to the back of your closet and find some gently worn professional clothes that you don't wear any more. The Public Defender’s Office Clothes Closet will use them to provide people with suitable attire for court appearances.
“We really have a critical need for all types of clothing,” said Orange/Osceola Public Defender Bob Wesley. “These donations help maintain the dignity of court proceedings and ensure that the lack of proper attire doesn’t affect the outcome of cases before the court.”
Donations will be accepted from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 19, in front of the Orange County Courthouse at 435 North Orange Avenue, Orlando. Donation receipts will be provided.
"Now is a great time for people to reach into the back of their closets for those items they don’t wear anymore," said Wesley. "Why not clean out your closet and make room for the new clothes you’ll be getting for the holidays?"
