2017 has been a very exciting year for From Outside In! Thanks to amazing volunteers and partners, we have been able to accomplish a lot of our goals for the year! Please take a look at some of our biggest accomplishments in 2017:
From Outside In became a 501c3 Non-profit in March
Raised nearly $40,000 and hosted our First 5k Fundraiser
Lauched our first marketing campaign, which includes a Website, Video media, and Brochures
Had 10 Mobile-Boutique Events with Partner Organizations in the Community - almost double the goal we had for the number of events this year!
Partnered with 5 New Non-Profit Organizations in the Community, Including: Covenant House, Orlando Children's Church, Orlando Union Rescue Mission, Orange County Community Action, and Central Florida Leadership Academy! Our original goal was to partner with 2 additional organizations this year!
Developed new processes for sorting and organizing donated clothes, this includes tagging and estimating a value of each article of clothing (this incorporates a life skill lesson at events - as youth shop for clothes they see the value that is given to each clothing item)

Recruited and maintained ongoing Volunteers to assist with: Volunteer management, laundering donated clothes, sorting and organizing clothes, and event management.
