Thank you for your donations!  
      Since 2012 you have donated over 11-TONS

 October 15 - October 30

Drop off items in Sunday School Room #105 ("RED Room") OR
    leave them in the hall near the outside exits
.

Seasons are changing - Time to clean out and Bless someone else with your excess.

Coordinated Biannually in the Spring and the Fall.

Allow your rarely worn items to Bless someone else.  And it's more than only clothing! 

Searching those closets, drawers, attic, and basement! Do you have clothing that is still in good condition? Shoes that are gently worn? Blankets and sheets that are not the color you want?

Ask your neighbors if they have anything to contribute!

Begin now and collect your items in a plastic bag or garbage bag.  Make sure your bags are well-tied before dropping them off at the church.

The donations will be weighed and St John's UCC Laurys Station will be given a monetary donation for the poundage.  All wearable clothing is shipped out for people to wear in the USA and around the world.

We contract with "Recycle Local," a Native American Minority owned clothing and re-useable household item recycling company.  Local's textile and small household item recycling programs keep millions of pounds of reusable materials out of our nation's landfills each year. This is not only a win for the environment, but also a huge win for our recycling partners' job programs that employ: Special Needs Individuals, Native Americans and Local businesses & non-profits.
