Fashion Show Blue Hill

For years, Julie Jo Fehrle had dreamed of creating a Fashion Show Fundraiser to raise awareness for the TurnStyle Thrift Shop and money for the Tree of Life Food Pantry.  In March of 2018, she teamed up with Maxfield Y Rhine and Abigail Jakub to produce the first Fashion Show Blue Hill in the Mainescape Glass House. The standing-room only event featured local youth and community members modeling outfits sourced from the TurnStyle. It raised $5,000 for the pantry.  This slide-show/video was produced by Chek Wingo who generously donated his time and talent.


In These Times

In  2012 the  Richard S. Petty Charitable Foundation gave The Tree of Life Food Pantry a $5,000 donation to help produce two short films about how the pantry turns clothing sales into food for those in need.  Dick and Melody Kane of Sedgwick, who operate Kane-Lewis Productions, produced the films and donated much of their time.  In These Times is a three-minute advertisement to raise awareness for the pantry.  Turning Clothing Into Food, 10 minutes long, explains the relationship between the TurnStyle Thrift Shop and the food pantry.  

If you would like to screen either of these films or would like more information on how to replicate the Tree of Life funding model of turning clothing into food, contact us.
