Clothing donation bin available on campus

F&M has recently partnered with CommunityAid to allow students, faculty and staff to donate gently used clothing and other items for local thrift stores. A large donation bin has been placed on the corner of the dirveway between LSP and Weis. It is emptied several times a week. 
    
ACCEPTED ITEMS   
Men's, women's, and children's clothing, new and used 
Shoes, pursues, wallets, belts, ties, wigs and hats 
Household items, such as pots, pans and other kitchenware 
Home decorative items and knick knacks 
CD's, DVD's, and video games 
Toys & stuffed animals 
Books, records, TV & movie memorabilia 
Artwork and other collectibles 
Small furniture items such as night stands and end tables 
Fully functional electronics 
Linens, towels, blankets, bed sheets and curtains 
    
ITEMS NOT ACCEPTED 
Text books, library books, encyclopedias 
Large furniture and mattresses 
Televisions 
Computers & computer accessories 
    
The donated items are removed from the bin several times each week and sold in CommunityAid thrift stores. Based on the weight of the clothing in each bin, F&M is awarded with a quarterly cash donation per pound, which can be donated to a nonprofit organization. 

In addition, F&M receives Care Cards (clothing vouchers) for the needy in our area, which can be used in one of CommunityAid’s thrift stores. Following an introductory period of partnership, F&M will be eligible to apply for grants during announced grant application periods.
