Are you having trouble finding room for those new Christmas gifts? Is it time to clean out that old wardrobe?
Well, no need to throw anything out. Donate it.
About 4,000 lbs of clothing and household items are still needed for En Pointe Dance Studio’s fundraiser.
According to Katelynn Garden, owner of the studio, 7,600 lbs has already been collected.
“We still need about 4,000 lbs to hit our 10,000 lb goal,” Garden said.
The Studio’s Parental Advisory Committee came up with the idea.
“It was PAC that brought the idea to me. In light of the Syrian Refugee crisis, we thought what a wonderful idea,” Garden said.
The items will be donated to the Salvation Army.
“It also keeps these lightly used items from going to the landfill. Why when it can all be reused,” Garden says.
Donations will be accepted until Feb. 4.
“PAC always has fresh ideas to offer and that’s what keeps us going,” Garden said. “And we’ve received so much support from the community. It’s been really awesome.”
