The Bakehouse Art Complex will host a donation drive for Lotus House Thrift on November 13th 2009, 6-10pm.
The Bakehouse Art Complex is hosting its ‘second Friday’ event at its 33,000 square foot facility on November 13th, 2009.

The BAC is asking that any patron who would like to attend the opening reception to bring donations of new and gently used clothing, linens, beds, tables, chairs, loveseats, TVs and other small appliances, dishes, kitchen items and other household goods. All donations from this evening will be collected at the door and go directly to the Lotus House Thrift. All the proceeds from Lotus House Thrift help fund shelter, meals, education, counseling, health services, job readiness training, social services, and relocation assistance to homeless women and children. The thrift store is located at 203 NW 36th Street, Miami.
The Lotus House’s distinctive pink truck will be parked outside of the Bakehouse Art Complex accepting donations from 6-10pm the night of November 13th. All donations are tax-deductable.
Attendance at the BAC opening receptions are consistently around 300 people, if everyone brings a donation, we can truly make a difference in the lives of women and children in need.
A quiet enclave in the heart of one of Miami’s poorest neighborhoods providing shelter and support, the Lotus House offers a sanctuary from life on the streets – a place where the minds, bodies and spirits of women & infants most in need are supported and nurtured.
