Journal 10- Dignity U Wear

Last Friday, my class went to Dignity U Wear. Dignity U Wear is a warehouse where poor people can get new clothes. Dignity U wear collects clothes that are out of fashion or that the store doesn’t want. What we did today is first we watched a short movie about how Dignity U Wear started. Then, we organized scarves into piles of ten. Then we made gloves into piles, and finally winter hats. Along the way, we had to rip off price tags and mark off barcodes. I think it was a valuable mitzvah that we did, honoring the poor.

  1. כב וּבְקֻצְרְכֶם אֶת-קְצִיר אַרְצְכֶם, לֹא-תְכַלֶּה פְּאַת שָׂדְךָ בְּקֻצְרֶךָ, וְלֶקֶט קְצִירְךָ, לֹא תְלַקֵּט; לֶעָנִי וְלַגֵּר תַּעֲזֹב אֹתָם, אֲנִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם. {פ}

    And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corner of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleaning of thy harvest; thou shalt leave them for the poor, and for the stranger: I am the LORD your God.

  2. I am glad that you thought it was a worthwhile experience. It really does help poor people get much needed clothing.
