1,543 households contribute to Spring Clothing Drive
LOVES PARK, Ill. — Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful (KNIB) volunteers and staff assisted 1,543 area households with clothing and other soft goods that were dropped off at its Spring Clothing Drive Saturday, May 14.
KNIB Executive Director Lori Gummow said, “We are always encouraged to see so many bring clothing and other recyclable soft goods to our drop-off sites.”
More than 100 volunteers gave 388 hours to count cars, greet attendees and unload cars.
The top attended sites this spring were the Brynwood Hilander with 380 households, and the Roscoe Hilander, counting 346 households.
“Special thanks to our dedicated volunteers of all ages who took the time to make a difference,” Gummow said. “Second-hand clothing is still in demand and valued all over the world; our drives help fill this need, as well as keeping usable items out of the landfill.”
