It’s time to swap out that wardrobe — put away those shorts and crop tops and bust out the chunky knits, knee-high boots and cozy scarves.

And during this transition to cold-weather duds, why not take the opportunity to sort through your fall wardrobe and hand over some of it to those who will wear and appreciate it?

Interfaith Sanctuary is organizing a “Pop-Up” thrift shop Saturday, Oct. 29, to provide free seasonally appropriate clothing for the homeless of Boise and needs clothing donations to help the cause.

The Pop-Up will be set up like an outdoor store at 1620 W. River St., Boise, displaying community-donated clothes in a fun, fashionable way.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., guests from Interfaith Sanctuary, Corpus Christi and other shelter organizations will be invited to fill a shopping bag with sweaters, pants, new socks, winter hats, backpacks, hand bags, scarves, winter coats and more — all for free.

Donations will be accepted until Friday, Oct. 21, at the Interfaith Sanctuary administrative offices, 3350 Americana Terrace, suite 320, in Boise, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

We aim to give our homeless community a fun and easy way to prepare for the colder months.

Interfaith Sanctuary's development director Jodi Peterson and shelter director Dan Ault
