First Step – Choose and Print Flyers
If you’re doing a neighborhood clothing drive:
– Customize and print a “Personal Message” to go with each neighborhood flyer: Contact one of the program organizers to get digital copies of flyers:
Heather Jones, 307-679-8741, firstname.lastname@example.org,
Kirsten Hobbs, 913-963-3149, email@example.com
– Tape the flyer and personal message to the front doors of your neighbors.
If you’re doing a clothing drive through an organization such as work or church:
– Write your name and contact info on the all flyers you print
– Post a flyer along with a collection box in a common area, (breakroom, foyer, etc.)
SECOND STEP – Collect clothing!
Make sure to print and post a “collection location” sign on your porch so people know they are bringing clothing to the right place.
THIRD STEP – Make arrangements to transport your donations to Mark Twain Elementary.
There are two options for this:
Option One – Bring the donations to Mark Twain yourself during any of our designated sorting dates. The final sorting date is July 19th at 10 AM. Please contact Kirsten Hobbs or Heather Jones in advance so we know to expect you and can help bring your donations into the school.
June 14 10:00 AM- 12:00 PM
June 28 10:00 AM- 12:00 PM
July 12 10:00 AM- 12:00 PM
July 19 10:00 AM- 12:00 PM
We would love to have you stay and help sort if possible, but you’re welcome to simply drop off the clothing.
Entrance is through the gym doors at the back of the school on 24th Street, which is one-way. From State Ave, turn right on 22nd, right on Minnesota Ave and right on 24th.
Option Two – If you are unable to make it to a sorting event, we will be glad to pick up the donations from you. *All donations must be collected from your home by Saturday July 15th. Contact Heather Jones or Kirsten Hobbs to arrange a pick-up.
