Area Business Opens Doors for Those in Need
Just in time for school, one area business opened its doors for those in need.
The owner of Sandy's Boutique in Gainesville gave away clothes to more than 50 people earlier today. She got the idea after reading about businesses helping those most affected by the recession. Each person was given a plastic bag to fill; whatever fit, they were allowed to keep.
"I'm just telling people hopefully things will get better and we're just trying to do our part to make it a little easier for them," says Sandy Thompson.
The clothes are gently used and many are turned in by college students. Thompson plans on making this a yearly event.
