Clothing donations are sorted and recycled for proceeds.
The average American discards 68 lbs of textiles every year making up 5% of that national waste stream. Donating clothing and other items will not only help the needy in your community, but also decrease waste.
Proceeds are converted to food vouchers or donated to partnering charity organizations for programs.
Needy of Greater Baton Rouge uses the proceeds from the recycled donations and provides food vouchers and grocery coupons to those who qualify in the local community. These proceeds are sometimes donated to other partnering charities to help others in need. View out Photo Gallery to see some of the events we have participated in recently.
