Clothing drive

BELVIDERE— From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 10, Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful hosts its Fall Clothing Drive at the Belvidere Township Office located at 8200 Fairgrounds Road, as well as at all Rockford area Schnucks Markets, including Cherry Valley.

“Clean clothing that’s no longer needed can be re-used or repurposed,” Lori Gummow, executive director of Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful said. “Clothing may be redistributed throughout the world. What’s not wearable will be used to make fiberfill or otherwise repurposed.”

Please drop off items in plastic bags. Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful is still in need of volunteers, especially in Belvidere, and at the Schnucks locations on 11th Street and East State Street at Trainer Road.

Volunteers help unload such items as clean men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and shoes, hats, belts, purses, soft-sided luggage, throw rugs, curtains, stuffed toys, sheets, blankets and towels. Greeters who speak to drivers and hand out calendars are also needed, a no lifting opportunity. Three-hour shifts begin at 8:30 a.m. or 11:15 a.m.

The fall event is the environmental non-profit’s third clothing drive this year. Clothing is also accepted at the two Recycle Center locations weekly in Roscoe and at 4665 Hydraulic Road, off South Alpine in Rockford.

Event support is provided by Belvidere Township; Greenlee, A Textron Company; Schnucks; Mid-West Family Broadcasting; The Rock River Times; 23WIFR Gray Television, Inc., and many local businesses providing trucks and supplies, including Realtor Debbie Carlson.
