Textile Drive

Time: 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m

Donations collected under a tent on the church green.

Bags@School will be collecting the textiles, which must be clean and can be anything that touches a human body: clothing, hats, belts, ties, purses, footwear (tied in pairs), blankets, sheets, and towels. Soft/stuffed toys are accepted too. Cannot take pillows. Although the donations must be clean, the clothes do not have to be wearable. Torn and stained items can be recycled too. The aim is to help the environment by diverting unwanted textiles away from landfills.
