Get going on spring cleaning your closets. Eastside Lions Youth Rugby will collect donations of used clothes and textiles at a Clothes for the Cause fundraiser for the month of May.

Instead of throwing worn clothes in the trash, where they will sit in a landfill, donate your clothes and textiles and give them a second life. Ninety-eight percent of all the textiles collected will be repurposed, reused or recycled.

Types of items accepted include clothes in any condition, hats, towels, linens, rugs, curtains, bathmats, purses, shoes and stuffed animals. Items not excepted include wet or damp items, glass, electronics, pet beds, mattresses, bed pillows and large quantities of industrial textiles.

The Clothes for the Cause donation truck will be parked in the Safeway parking lot, 735 N.W. Gilman Blvd. The truck will be there from noon to 1:30 p.m. May 31.Bring your donations that day.

If you have a large amount of items (10 full black bags or more) call Susan at 503-5542 to make arrangements to have them picked up at your house.

    We are just wondering if we missed something. This sounded like a good cause and good opportunity to do some spring cleaning. We put together about 10 bags of clothes, shoes, stuffed animals and showed up at the Safeway on Gilman today, 5/31/14 at 1:00 PM. We drove around the parking lot. We did not see any trucks at all to pick up our bagged items. We waited about 20 to 25 minutes to see if a truck would show up. We asked several Safeway employees if they knew anything about this. None of them did. We would still like to donate if possible. I left a message for “Susan” on the voicemail of the phone number listed in the article. I hope she calls me back at 206-947-0932. Thanks. Gary P
