New Clothing Recycling Bin to support Friends of the Poor

If you live in NEPA or if you are making plans to travel to Marywood, for a meeting, holiday celebration or just to visit—Friends of the Poor has installed a new clothing recycling bin on the road approaching the IHM Center.

All items placed in the bin are sorted and used for the poor at our various locations. Men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, shoes, and accessories (e.g. belts) are all accepted and needed. At times, we do receive items that cannot be used. In those rare instances, the materials are recycled into other usable products – which again benefit our earth and the poor.

Thank you for your past support. Please know that you are doing a good thing for the poor and for the Earth when you place gently used items in this bin.
