A local non-profit organization that helps the community and survivors of abuse is showcasing their resale store at the Tanger Outlet mall.

The LACASA Center assists hundreds of victims and survivors of child abuse, domestic violence, and sexual assault each year. Last September they opened their upscale resale boutique, The LACASA Collection, on Highland Road in Howell. Now coming up on their 6-month anniversary, they have been invited to host a pop-up awareness event at Tanger Outlets, for the Tanger Cares Suite program.

LACASA Chief Communications Officer Robin O’Grady said they are going to bring a representation of the store to the mall. There will be displays of different merchandise they have from designer brands in housewares, clothing, purses, jewelry, and more.

LACASA is also asking the public to bring in a new or nearly-new item to donate. The first 50 who do so will receive a free tote bag and be entered into a drawing for one of 4 $50 gift cards at Tanger. O’Grady said she’s excited to bring this preview of the LACASA Collection to those who may not yet have visited. To those that have, she thanked for the generous outpouring of support they’ve seen in their first 6 months. They are currently working on permits to expand the store into the vacant space next door to them that will allow for more room to display the furniture donations they have received.

You can visit the LACASA Collection at the Tanger Cares Suite at the mall on Friday, March 9th, from 11am to 5pm. (MK)
