Clean out the closets! The DDA Clothing Drive is coming up on Thursday, May 2. White DDA collection bags will come home soon, but if you have more than will fit in one bag, you can use any garbage bag or similar-sized bag.

Are these yours? Lost and found items will be donated to the DDA Clothing Drive

Acceptable “soft” items include clothing, shoes, purses, accessories (hats, mittens, scarves), linens, bedding, towels, blankets, drapes, table linens, sewing material. Acceptable housewares (“hard” items) include sporting gear, toys, games, dishes, pots, pans, cutlery, glassware, vases, and small ornaments. Please note, DDA does not accept books, pillows, furniture, or any other large items. Please separate your “soft” and “hard” items into separate bags.

This clothing drive benefits the Developmental Disabilities Association. If we gather 150 full bags or more, we will receive $3 per bag. These proceeds will support this year’s Grade 7 graduation celebrations as well as their “legacy gift” of a new water-bottle filler, which has already been installed on the 3rd floor of the school!

Drop off your bags on Thursday May 2, between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. on Ridgeway Ave between 8th and 9th Streets (near the tennis courts). Tell your friends and family – the more bags we receive, the more money we raise!
