Spring Cleaning Donations to First United

FIRST UNITED DONATIONS:  Spring Pick Up March 12th and 19th
We will have two major campaigns, spring and autumn 2017, for donations to First United.
pile-of-clothesSPRING:  Spring is fast approaching – daffodils and tulips are pushing up – and with spring comes the promise to declutter the closets and to admit that the perfectly good shirt you bought three years ago –  70% off –  and have worn once was not a good purchase.  Or that several items are too baggy, or too small.  You are invited to donate your “spring is coming”  declutter to First United.  “Cold is coming” will be addressed in the fall.
THRIFT STORE  – nearly new or  new clothing (no rips, stains etc) that will be purchased by the neighbouring community.  Mens’ and women’s casual clothing, including accessories such as hats, belts, jewellery, sleepwear, shoes.  Coffee sized mugs are a popular item.
CLIENT SUPPORT – casual pants and tops, underwear, SOCKS, sport shoes (men sizes 8 – 12; women sizes 5 – 8).
EVERYDAY ITEMS – SOCKS, shampoo, toothbrushes/toothpaste are in high demand.  There are two bins in the storage room whereby these items  can be donated on an ongoing basis. In December we delivered over 140 pairs of socks to the mission.
DONATION DATES – bins will be placed in the Great Hall before and after service on March 12th and 19th to accept the results of your decluttering.  If possible, please separate your donations according to thrift store and client support.
Discussion and questions  — see Peggy and Mary Lou after service or leave a message for them in the main office.
