Finding More Ways to Help

When Carolyn Hunter graduated from a Virginia community college in 1977 and began working on a McDonald’s grill, she could not have imagined that she would someday own 3 McDonalds locations. Now, as a member of the TTC Foundation Board of Trustees and donor of the college’s first $1 Million pledge, she keeps finding new ways to support the college.

Her latest philanthropic venture, Sissy’s Closet, is one of them. “Where upscale meets resale,” Sissy’s Closet is a retail store in Goose Creek that sells new and gently used ladies clothing and accessories. The shop is named for Rachel Thompson, Carolyn’s late mother, who was affectionately known as Sissy and instilled in Carolyn a sense of determination and perseverance.  

All proceeds from Sissy’s Closet benefit Trident Technical College Foundation, Ronald McDonald House of Charleston, and Teacher’s Supply Closet. Their mission is to raise money for these charities, but also provide opportunities for volunteerism and interaction, making our communities a better place for families and neighbors.

The store is open every Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and is located at 105 Etling Avenue in Goose Creek.  For more information visit Sissy's Closet.
