The entire month of August 2013, YMCA members are encouraged to de-clutter their homes and drop off donations of gently-used clothing, shoes, books and small electronics in the lobby of the 1325 McKean Road Y location.
This collaborative community event was inspired by the fact that both organizations share like-minded missions to improve local communities. The YMCA’s mission is to strengthen communities by working side by side with neighboring organizations, so that everyone has the opportunity to grow and thrive…not just through physical fitness, but also by fostering a sense of social responsibility.
“We are actually really looking forward to this partnership,” says Jaime Boris, the Y’s Marketing Director. “Anytime we put a call out to our members that there is a need in the community they respond well beyond what we ever expected.”
If you’re in the area, stop by and drop off a bag of gently-used clothing, shoes, books and electronics. Impact Thrift will turn your donated merchandise into cash for local charities… donors benefit, shoppers benefit, and the charities they support certainly benefit.
