Wearable items will be sorted locally by our partner, to be redistributed or sold in the U.S. or developing nations.
Items no longer suitable for wear are re-purposed into fiberfill products such as carpet padding, polishing cloths, or automotive trunk linings.
Thousands of local households participate in the Clothing Drives each year.
Donated items should be placed in plastic bags and securely tied.
Shoes should be placed together in same the same bag.
Clean, dry items accepted, wearable or not, include:
Men’s, Women’s and Children’s Apparel
Shoes (may rubber band or tie pairs together)
Backpacks, Soft-sided Luggage, Purses, Briefcases
Bathmats, Throw Rugs
Bed linens and Pillows (no mattresses)
Rag Stock — Stained or Torn Items
Bagged clothing may also be dropped off during regular hours at Roscoe and Rockford Recycle Centers.
