Food City/Goodwill Industries Earth Day Clothing Drive

ABINGDON, VA (Monday, April 15, 2013) – Food City and Goodwill Industries have teamed up to host a joint Earth Day Clothing Drive at select locations throughout the region.

“Our ECO committee is continually looking for new opportunities to grow and enhance our environmental initiatives,” says Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer.  “We have established several new partnerships for Earth Day, including our Goodwill clothing drive.  Our goal is to provide our customers with an easy, convenient method of donating their gently used clothing items rather than discarding them.”         

Several area Food City locations will serve as official drop-off sites.  Collection bins will be available in a designated area of the parking lot.  Goodwill representatives will be present from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. to accept gently used clothing items.  All donated items will be sold through local Goodwill retail stores to benefit their mission of providing job training to individuals who may lack work experience, formal education, or who are facing other employment challenges.

According to Goodwill, “every year, millions of pounds of textiles end up as municipal solid waste and only a small portion is recovered.  Clothing drives such as this prevent some of those items from ending up in the land fill and instead provide them to those in need.”

The dates of the drives will vary by location.  Please visit Food City’s website at www.foodcity.com to view the complete calendar drive schedule.
