Goodwill Clothing Drive for Back to School

Cleaning out your closets? Need a place to donate those outgrown kids' clothes? I just read about this and wanted to pass it along to anyone who might be interested.

To ensure that every child goes back to school in style this year, Goodwill Industries International and Family Circle have teamed up to launch a five million pound clothing drive which will run from Saturday, August 1 through Wednesday, September 30, 2009. [...]

Family Circle and Goodwill invite parents to put their gently used adult and kids’ clothes to work by donating them so that another child can have a “new to them” outfit for their first day of school. The donated items will be sold at more than 2,300 Goodwill® retail stores, making affordable, contemporary clothing available to families on a budget. The program will also generate revenue that funds Goodwill’s job training programs and career services to help families achieve economic success. [...]

Readers can help Goodwill and Family Circle reach their five million pound goal by attaching the donation coupon from the magazine’s September issue with their clothing contribution. Readers can also visit www.shopfamilycircle.com/goodwill to find helpful information about organizing their own Back-to-School Clothing Drives.

The donation coupon can be found in the September issue of Family Circle, or downloaded and printed online. More than 2,300 Goodwill stores are participating. Click here to find the location nearest you.

  2. We are participating this weekend with members of our church.

    I think you should link this post up to Community Service Saturday at http://copingwithfrugality.blogspot.com/ this weekend. It is a blog carnival for any type of volunteering and/or donation post.
