The Pearl River School District’s PTAs are partnering with I Donate Goods to hold their third used clothing, textiles and toy fundraising drive. Anyone and everyone is invited to bring clean, used clothing, linens, stuffed animals and toys to the Pearl River High School Pirate Cove on Friday, April 20, between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. and Saturday, April 21, between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. I Donate Goods
will give the PTAs 16 cents per pound for items donated, plus another $100 bonus for every 5,000 pounds. The recycling company then sorts and packs the items into shipping containers to be sold to those in need, domestically and overseas.
Acceptable items for the drive include usable and wearable men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, shoes, belts, handbags, linens, sheets, blankets, stuffed animals and toys that are intact with all pieces together. Clothing and linens should be washed and packed into large plastic bags with ties. Pearl River High School is located at 275 East Central Avenue. The Pirate Cove is located near the gym/cafeteria entrance around the back of the building.
Proceeds from the drive will be split among the district’s six PTAs, one each at Evans Park Elementary School, Franklin Avenue Elementary School, Lincoln Avenue Elementary School, Pearl River Middle School, Pearl River High School, and the Special Education PTA. Funds will be used to support school programs.
“Our fall clothing drive was very successful and raised $2100. It was a well-organized event thanks to the efforts of our coordinators, Sherri Preston, Evans Park PTA President, and PTA member, Stacey Maher,” stated Diana Musich, Director of Human Resources and Community Services.
