Our Savior's Lutheran Church Opens Shed to Collect Clothing
Cleaning out your closets? Now you can bring your used clothing donations to Our Savior’s Lutheran Church at 1655 Main St. in Newington.
Our Savior’s Lutheran Church is partnering with St. Pauly Textile Inc. to provide a wood-frame clothing drop-off shed for community use (see pictures). This shed is designed to give community members a uniquely clean, convenient, and well-cared-for option to donate their used clothing to.
St. Pauly Textile Inc. partners with a network of businesses and various organizations to distribute donated items both here in the U.S. and worldwide, where they are ultimately re-worn by people who need them. Our Savior’s Lutheran Church receives funding for donated clothing and has the option to use donations to serve community needs.
With over 1,100 clothing drop-off sheds in place, St. Pauly Textile Inc. collects over 90,000 pounds of clothing every day and estimates that this clothing ends up in 44 different countries (including the U.S.) yearly. Our goal is to get USEABLE clothing to people who can use it, here in the U.S. and in developing countries, while having a meaningful impact in our local communities. In 2018, the company was able to help keep over 20 million articles of clothing out of landfills. The company was founded in 1996 and is an A+ rated member of the Better Business Bureau.
