A group of students from Omaha North High School spent part of their Monday shopping, but it was all for a good cause.
As part of their service learning academy program, the teens spent time at the Goodwill off North 72nd Street. Part of the morning focused on Goodwill and its mission, and the other part shopping.
Each student received $10 and picked out clothes to be transformed and used in an upcoming fashion show. “I'm into lace and really like extreme puffy things,” Marie Henry, a senior at Omaha North said, “So I was trying to find a dress or skirt that would appeal to me, it is kind of old fashion but I think I could spiff it up or something, if I try.”
Once the clothes are “up-cycled” and worn in the show, they will be returned back to Goodwill to be used in the window displays.
