Don’t throw it away! Pass it on! Donations of used clothes, furniture, and household items in good condition can help families or anyone looking for a bargain. Unfortunately, perfectly good used clothes are thrown out on a daily basis rather than deliver them to a worthy cause.
The entire community is invited to participate in the ultimate re-gifting and recycling event this holiday season—hosted by Lone Star College-North Harris. The college’s Truck Driving Academy 18-wheeler will be located on the LSC-North Harris campus in parking Lot H, Thursday, Dec 3 and Fri. Dec. 4, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., where volunteers will be posted at the truck to receive and unload your donations. The donated items will then travel to Aldine Y.O.U.T.H. Community Center on Saturday, Dec. 5, to help replenish their resale shop which has recently been burglarized. For more information about the project, call Vickie Stanfield at 281.618.5434 or Joyce Wiley 281.260.3525.
