Morningside Alums Launch Clothing Collection Drive

clothing stock photoThe Morningside Monarch Alumni Association (MMAA) has teamed up with Clothes for the Cause to collect clothing, shoes, hats, linens and more for a high school fundraiser.

Clothes for the Cause pays fundraising groups per pound for the clothes they collect, allowing the items to be re-worn, recycled or repurposed. The MMAA’s goal is to round up 20,000 pounds of textiles this spring!

Anyone interested in contributing can drop off items in bags from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at theMorningside High School library, 10500 Yukon Ave. The fundraiser runs through May 29.

Acceptable items include clothing of all sizes (infants to adults), coats and jackets, shoes (paired only), towels, gloves, hats, sheets, blankets, quilts, bedspreads, drapes and curtains, purses, belts and stuffed animals.

Anyone with questions or needing to have clothes picked up can call 323-754-1242. Call 310-680-5230 to reach Morningside High. More information about Clothes for the Cause can be found
