Going Green With Clothes, Another Way to Recycle

Residents and other doners donated clothing to the Gateway Center in order to raise funds for youth programming. This was a way of reusing peoples clothes.
The items donated were purses, shoes, shirts and pants. With the pieces donated, customers were able to purchase a complete wardrobe for under $5!
The sale was a success and we accomplished two goals, raising funds for a good cause and re-using instead of throwing away.


  1. I LOVE IT!!! Sustainable Fashion is my Passion and this immediately caught my attention. This is a fabulous initiative and I commend each and every one of you for stepping outside of the norms. I tell young people all the time that leadership is not about you! Its about others, giving while looking for little in return! You guys were all Leaders and decided to take a risk that turned out great.

    If you have any more ideas or questions I would love to help!!
