Recycling Clothing and Fashion Accessories

Clothes Aren't Trash

Free of charge, HELPSY takes clothes (and a few other things; see below) that we don't need and either upcycles or recycles them. This keeps them out of landfills and helps us take care of creation. Look for the blue bin beside the dumpster behind the church.

See below for all the details on what they can take.
