2014 clothing drive 033

SAVE THE DATE — GFTH ANNUAL USED CLOTHING DRIVE

Dates:  2015:  December 4 (Friday), (Saturday) 5 and 6 (Sunday)

Location:  Portals III, 1201 Maryland Avenue, SW, Washington DC (the same generous donor of our used clothing drive in the recent past years)

What:  GFTH receives gently used clothing donations during the drive weekend only.  Prior to the drive, our board and leadership council members and volunteers contact 60+ area shelters and other organizations who serve the DC area homeless to find out who they service and what type of clothing meets their greatest needs.  This is so that those organizations receive used clothing donations that are most needed.  During the weekend of the drive, our volunteers help sort the clothing by categories and deliver thousands of bags of donations to 60+ Washington, DC area shelters and other organizations to provide services to assist those experiencing homelessness.  This is a once a year opportunity to spend a few hours with other joyful volunteers during the holiday season to help local men, women and children in need.  Information about our clothing past clothing drives can be found here and here.

Who:  While we primarily rely on help from the DC area legal community (law firms, law departments, non-profits, other law organizations, court reporter firms and other law firm vendors, and government) to make our clothing drive a great success each year, we also generously receive help from non-profits, volunteer organiations, religious organizations, community organizations, corporations and small businesses, homeless services providers, univesities, families, friends, all individuals.  We are in need of anyone to collect used clothing donations now through the kickoff of the used clothing drive.  Also, we will need volunteers at the drive to help sort, bag and deliver the used clothing donations.  Online volunteer sign-up will be posted soon and group signups may contact Ceceile Patterson @ cpatterson@gfth.org
