A quick review of our organization and it's goals....we accept clothing donations from local people. We wash and redistribute them to LOCAL people in need via referrals from school administration, homeless shelters, Human Services workers, CareerLink and other nonprofits in the area. Easy right? That is only HALF of what we do. Clothing that is received with stains, tears, holes...or is otherwise unwearable is recycled into something new like a rugs, dog toys, cat toys, fabric flowers (for hairclips or headbands), potholders and whatever else we can find on Pintrest. In essence, the nonprofits feeds our crafting addiction which is a good thing! Yearly each of us aways over 80 pounds of fabric each year!
In a nut shell we are not only helping people that are going through tough times, but we are also helping the planet by keeping fabric out of landfills.
In March 2017 we helped 30 people with one of life's basic necessities...clothing!
