The Irvine Headquarters of Working Wardrobes, a local non-profit charitable organization that many of our county employees donate clothes to for the less fortunate, burned down in a fire on the morning of Sunday, February 2nd. No one was hurt or in the building at the time, but all contents in the building were completely lost. Approximately 100 firefighters were at the scene, but it was several hours before firefighters could access the building.
“The fire at Working Wardrobes is a devastating loss to the county. We have partnered with this wonderful organization for many years to help the needy in Orange County,” said Orange County Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Michelle Steel. “While we are relieved that no one was harmed in this incident, this fire has taken away a valuable resource to our county.”
The Goodwill has provided a temporary home for Working Wardrobes at their Santa Ana location while they look to rebuild. Working Wardrobes is asking for donations to help rebuild their headquarters. One can make donations here: https://workingwardrobes.org/donate-money/
