HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
A Tennessee Valley teen wants to help other young girls in the area.
Victoria Jones is in the process of collecting clothes for her annual pre-teen clothing drive. It is sponsored by her organization, Girl Naturale.
Jones and her sister Olivia created the event, which allows girls to go shopping for free in a boutique-like setting.
Victoria said Girls, Inc., the Inner City Learning Center, and the Harvest Youth Club are participating in this year's event.
"We want to impact girls and give them the confidence they feel that they need going back to school," Victoria said. "We want to accommodate girls with free clothes, trendy clothes. We're sorting right now, and we only give the best of the best."
Last year, Victoria and Girl Naturale provided free clothing to 35 girls. This year, with your help, they hope to help 100. If you would like to participate, you can drop off clothes at Sparkman High School, where there will be a donation box provided.
The Girl Naturale Teen Boutique will be held at Sparkman High July 18 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Victoria said she hopes to rally other local teens to join her cause. For more information on how to donate or volunteer, visit Girl Naturale's Facebook page. You can also call (256) 468-9837 or email.
