BeeCause is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the Novato community through the operation of a community closet, providing clothing and other necessities to individuals and families in need. We intend to work collaboratively with social services agencies and other community outreach organizations to identify potential clients for referral.
‘One man’s trash is another man’s treasure’…
Nobody can deny that our society’s current habit of mass-consumerism is impacting the world around us. We can’t change the world, but we can make a small dent, starting right here in our town. Clothing, furnishings, and other household necessities which are cast off as either no longer needed or en vogue, but are still in good, usable condition, often make their way into our landfill or donated to a conglomerate ‘charity’ organization who then trucks it out of the area, adding to the items’ carbon footprint, and will resell it at prices that -more often than not- are out of reach for many who may be on fixed income or struggling to make ends meet.
We keep it local! Neighbors helping neighbors…we believe this is a cornerstone to building community.
