Passion 4 Fashion (P4F) is a newly-created club run by juniors Mischa Lee, Nina Eyerman and Elyssa Grillo. During this year’s Winter Week festivities, P4F created a makeshift thrift store. Before the thrift store event, Wayland High School students were asked to donate old clothes to the club. Then, the club leaders displayed the donated clothes and sold them for prices ranging from $2 to $7. All of the money that the club made from the thrift store was donated to the Circle of Hope charity.

“This was a fundraiser where we had people donate clothes that they no longer need,” Grillo said. “After collecting bags of clothes, we sorted everything into two piles: clothes we are going to donate and pieces we are going to use for the actual thrift store day.”

The club leaders have been workshopping this idea since the club began, and finalized it into a fundraiser. With posters hung up around the school and daily Instagram posts on P4F’s account, the fundraiser came to life.

“It was originally [Lee’s] idea, and over time we all collaborated together and added on to her idea,” Eyerman said. “We talked to our club members as well and everyone added their ideas to create this fundraiser. Once people donated clothes, we tried to count the amount of clothes people donated and it got up to around 400 pieces of clothing.”

The P4F club meets every three weeks during the three lunch blocks on “E” letter days. The club leaders prepare a slideshow for every meeting, usually starting off with opinions on current-day fashion trends.

“We wanted to start this club so people could express themselves in the form of fashion,” Eyerman said. “With all the help from our club members, we are able to donate the money [made from the thrift store] to the Circle of Hope charity.”

According to the the three club leaders, they have dedicated their time and focused lots their energy into this club. Through collaborative teamwork and with the help of members and donors, P4F has had the ability to strive and make their club unique. The thrift store fundraiser reflects the commitment and devotion of the leaders, as well as their continued interest in creating fun experiences for students.

“I am really excited for the club to continue to grow and inspire people to show themselves through fashion,” Lee said.
