Woodinville Wrestling partners with Clothes for the Cause, a fundraising company that collects clothes in exchange for cash, for an event to raise money for the wrestling team. They are accepting clothing and shoes of any kind, in any condition, through Feb. 11. Following the clothing drive, Clothes for the Cause will pick up the donations and provide Woodinville Wrestling with the total of their fundraising effort, measured in dollars per pound.
“We are thrilled to be able to help Woodinville Wrestling in its time of need,” said Susan Hovey. “Clothes for the Cause makes it easy for everyone in our community to contribute by collecting things, free of charge, that our friends, family and neighbors already have in their houses.”
Through events, Clothes for the Cause gives community groups – churches, sports teams, school bands, and others – the opportunity to turn their friends’ and families’ unwanted clothes into cash, while promoting sustainability and charitable acts in their community.
Unlike the quintessential fundraiser that asks people to buy candy bars, flower bulbs or candles, Clothes for the Cause assists community groups and youth and makes a positive impact on the environment and in-need communities, without charging event participants a cent. Instead of decaying in landfills, donated items are re-worn, reused or ethically recycled both in the United States and abroad, based on best use.
