What's Mine is Yours is a (nonprofit) 501(C)(3) organization dedicated to the collection and distribution of Gently Loved Clothing. It began in June of 2012 when Paige and Katie were entering their freshman year of high school. What's Mine is Yours works with various shelters and foster agencies in Contra Costa and Alameda County. So far, What's Mine is Yours has partnered with:
-Community Youth Center (CYC)

-Bay Area Crisis Nursery
-Alameda Foster Care
-Santa Clara Country Department of Education
-Love A Child
-211 Emergency Services
-Kinship Support Services Program of Alameda County (KSSP)
-Students Rise Above (SRA)
We have also worked with individuals to ensure every teen girl, in our community, has the necessary clothing! Since What's Mine is Yours began, we have donated over 20,000 pieces of clothing to over 275 girls in our community and have hosted many "pop-up" shopping events.
As young adults, we see the importance of giving back to our community and we are determined to make a difference. We will not let our age limit our abilities, and we hope to inspire other teen girls to "be the change they want to see." We happily devote countelss hours of our time each week to make What's Mine is Yours a success. We are constantly looking for new oppourtunities and ways to help and expand our mission.
