Free Women's Choir Uniforms

Print this Article   |   Back To Top

The Grand Philharmonic Choir of Kitchener ON have changed choir uniforms because the old ones are not being made anymore.  There are a lot of black women's uniforms that they would love to donate to a choir that would benefit.

They are stretch, so fit all body types.  They have three pieces (long skirt, tank top, blazer) in women's sizes from very small to very large.  The uniforms are Canadian made, wrinkle-proof and basically indestructible.  There will likely be over 50 uniforms once they have all been collected.

They are free - you pay shipping (or come and pick them up!).  They will be available soon.

If you are interested, please contact Carole at 331carole@gmail.com
