Helping out at home  
This is kind of off-time but also not? IDK whatever, exception granted if only cause I love to post him when he's doing a shaka just to annoy jeezbee :P And ofc, he's being a sweetie, who doesn't like that?







source


Just to add some info about the organization he was helping was called The Teen's Closet and it just opened recently. More info here, but below is an excerpt.
One such partnership is The Teens Closet, a place where disadvantaged and homeless teens or their parents will be able to pick out and try on donated clothing. Normally, teens receive a bag of clothing pre-sorted by other youth.

Students donate much of the clothes, partly because Ray visits classrooms to make them aware that so many of their peers are homeless.

“Teenagers of all ages have their own personality and own style they like to reflect,” said Ray, whose work has made her acutely aware of the challenges that homeless and low-income kids face. She understands that when kids feel comfortable in their clothes and are not teased for looking unkempt, they are more likely to stay in school.

Assuming this is in SLO? Or not recent? I don't even know but he looks good here. And I like when he does the hand sign.

yeah. i'm pretty sure the sign says arroyo grande. and since he headed that way for turkey day and they were just posted, i wouldn't be surprised if they were from today.

The niceness clearly outweighs my annoyance with the shaka here. :)

he looks cute(: ...but what exactly did he do?
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on November 24th, 2011 04:03 am (UTC)
it looks to me like he was donating and sorting his old and gifted clothes to a community organization.

eta: doing some digging and it is a place called "Teen's Closet" which just opened like a week and a half ago:

One such partnership is The Teens Closet, a place where disadvantaged and homeless teens or their parents will be able to pick out and try on donated clothing. Normally, teens receive a bag of clothing pre-sorted by other youth.

Students donate much of the clothes, partly because Ray visits classrooms to make them aware that so many of their peers are homeless.

Forget the hand sign, this is so sweet of him. So he just donated a lot of his clothes? A lot of them look band new with tags still on them.

Good for him, I hope he enjoys the holiday with his fam.

Also he looks EXACTLY like he did in CSC. He looks really young here haha.

When Zac shaves, he looks REALLY young.

I can't take my eyes away from his jeans. So tight

lol so many patterns on his shoes.

And he's such a good egg. <3

I'm assuming these pics are from today then. I LOVE that he goes home and helps out...so nice he took the time for such a worthy cause:)
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on November 24th, 2011 05:09 am (UTC)
They definitely are from today.

TIGHT PANTS, TIGHT PANTS. (i.e. George Lopez interview)

He had such an ass right after TLO..........now its gone. :(
kleth on November 24th, 2011 04:31 pm (UTC)
Fat ass equals fat cheeks; I want to see those cheekbones again.

Skinny is good; don't you recall the rave review by Tom Lennon's wife from that video shoot? "Like two grapefruits."
abigail80831: pic#113712706abigail80831 on November 24th, 2011 10:29 pm (UTC)
Wait, that was Tom Lennon's wife? I didn't know that. Hahaha you mean the funny or die video, right?
The Writers Denmusewriter on November 24th, 2011 05:12 am (UTC)
I'd like to thank whoever encouraged him to purchase those jeans...yum!

Anyway, I have to say, as someone who has worked with disadvantaged people in the past it is so awesome for him (and anyone) to donate to people in need. Even a shirt or a pair of pants will make their day! Kudos, Zac.
kleth on November 24th, 2011 04:26 pm (UTC)
Everyone seems to be assuming that the clothes on display were donated personally by the Zefmeister, but I'm thinking this is stuff already on display. Does anyone recognize one t-shirt? Most of those shoes are really vile, I can't believe he ever owned them (or at least ever wore them - am I right?).

The jeans are tight, no surprise. They also reach almost to his waist! Is Zac becoming middle-aged?
Miranda gives everyone a chancemirandagirll on November 24th, 2011 04:32 pm (UTC)
Considering the people there said those clothes were personally donated by Zac, then they were.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on November 24th, 2011 04:34 pm (UTC)
he is gifted a ton of stuff he never uses and has always donated a lot of the clothing to organizations in need. so yeah i'm guessing a lot of what they said he donated was from him directly, especially considering the number of vans and the nikes, lol.
It's Audrey not Aubreyaudrey_za on November 24th, 2011 07:19 pm (UTC)
The assumptions come from the source saying he donated "hundreds and hundreds" of items in addition to knowledge of trivial gifting sent to him and/or his stylist (oftentimes without either asking for said goods). Even when he's on hiatus or off filming, boxes of clothing deliveries are made to the attention of his team (publicist or stylist) in lieu of his locale.

It's an obscene amount of free digs celebrities (and especially one as in demand as Zac is- given mention of him wearing a particular brand can move units to sell out and help a designer break even for a season in some cases)are given. If he's chosen to donate some of the excess for a good cause (versus the no-no of sending shipments back), I see no problem.

There's likely a fair portion of brand new and unworn items.
kleth on November 25th, 2011 02:06 pm (UTC)
I don't see a problem either. I'm just questioning the assumption when there is no explicit indication that what we see is what he donated. Probably is. But I imagined him showing up with large plastic trash bags filled with stuff. What we see is well folded and banded into bundles, kind of professional. If this is his donated stuff, someone did some prep-work for him.

The "product placement surplus" theory is probably correct, in which case, seeing what he donated won't tell us anything about him, just about the enterprises that give him stuff.
It's Audrey not Aubreyaudrey_za on November 25th, 2011 07:01 pm (UTC)
I didn't (and still don't) understand the extent to your questioning. Not that Zac and I are cut from the same cloth, but I recently donated clothing and folded each item- it's not uncommon nor unheard of. Additionally, if the clothing is gifting, brands wouldn't send it to a celebrity haphazardly tossed into a box. Even further, it's also not far fetched to believe every article hasn't been through a hands on type inspection, hence it could very well remain folded from it's initial arrival.

Granted, my theories are assumptions just like yours, although I've worked in the past for companies who have gifted packages to Zac (hence my comment about the no-no of returning, as it's viewed rude to do so). However, your musings seem to lessen the bottom line value in giving. If that isn't your meaning, my apologies, but I can't help but think of it as mean-spirited to search for flaw in a kind gesture.

I'm at a loss for words as to why/how it's important for donations to paint a picture of 'who Zac Efron is', simply because they are likely composed of some unwanted gifting. He gave to those in need. Now a personal back story is needed? Methinks this is a situation of reaching at its best.
kleth on November 25th, 2011 08:31 pm (UTC)
"However, your musings seem to lessen the bottom line value in giving."

Not my intent at all. I happen to volunteer at the local food distribution center, packing food boxes for seniors, weekend meals for kids who otherwise would go hungry without school meals, etc.

I'm interested in Zac Efron, as I assume everyone here is. You may have heard the expression, "Clothes make the man." If he had donated personal belongings, then what he donated might have told us something about him. If he is donating stuff that was given to him, then we gain no insight, except that he's willing to support a worthy cause, which we already knew.

Fair enough. Also, thank you for replying kindly and not taking to personal attacks (not that you ever have done so prior, but it happens and I appreciate that you talked out our differences versus going straight for the jugular).

oh fuck off
he's doing a good deed.
if you looked at the photo, most of the items have tags on them which means they were probably gifted. he clearly has no use for them so he put them to good use.
