UPDATE #2 Dec 15: GHS Clothing/ Textile Drive is in its home stretch and will conclude on Wednesday, December 20. As of Friday, the drive has resulted in 2,051 lbs of textiles, which will be reused, repurposed and, notably kept out of landfill. The money raised from the collection will go to the Harris Project’s co-occurring disorders prevention programming.
UPDATE from Ms. Steiner at GHS, Dec 10: Thank you to all who have donated clothes, shoes, boots, belts, backpacks, sheets, towels, and bedding to our GHS Clothing / Textile Drive. Please remember that we will take ripped, torn, stained and broken… we will take it all.
Our goal is to collect 3,000 pounds, and after the first five days we have collected 921 pounds of clothes and textiles that are now out of the landfill, and will be reused, refurbished and recycled by Fairco-Greentree Recycling. This is awesome!
Please continue to clean out your drawers, closets, basement, attic and garage through Dec. 20th. Drop off bins are located in the GHS back gym parking lot and at Arch Street Teen Center. All profits will go to the Harris Project to support programs centered around teen substance misuse and mental health challenges. Together we can make a difference to end the stigma of addiction and mental health challenges, and create a community of caring!
