NEW – 6 a.m. April 5, 2014

The Northwest Center will kick off a monthlong clothing drive with a special “Big Blue Sunday” event April 6 in Sammamish.

Residents who get a jump start on spring cleaning by bringing donations of clothes and shoes to the donation center’s truck parked at the Pine Lake QFC that day will be registered to win a $100 gift card to Value Village.

People who donate will also receive free gifts at the event which kicks off The Big Blue Closet Clean Out, an effort to get locals to donate clothing and shoes to help the Northwest Center provide education and job training to people with developmental disabilities.

The Sammamish event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Pine Lake QFC, 2902 228th Ave. S.E.
