Employment Horizons Hosts Annual Spring Clothing Drive

Clothing and fashion accessories for men, women and children will be collected as Employment Horizons holds its annual spring clothing drive April 19 – 21. The clothing drives offers an opportunity to spring into spring while benefiting area residents with disabilities.

Items to be collected also include stuffed animals and hard toys, such as dolls and action figures (must be below 14” in size), as well as household linens (blankets, sheets, curtains, etc – no fabric scraps or carpet). All items should be placed in well-tied plastic bags. Shoes, boots, and sneakers are also accepted. No single shoes, winter coats, or winter boots. All donated items will be distributed to needy families overseas. The clothing will be turned over to a company that will in turn pay Employment Horizons for each pound collected. The goal is to collect 5,000 lbs!

Bags may be dropped off at Employment Horizons, Inc. from April 19 – 21, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Donations are to be placed in the box truck marked “Clothing Drive” located in the Employment Horizons rear parking lot. Items may not be dropped off prior to these dates.

Don’t forget, Employment Horizons also has an on-site book bin where you can drop off books, textbooks, CDs, DVDs, and video games. No encyclopedias, magazines, VHS tapes, or water-damaged items.

Employment Horizons is a local not-for-profit organization which serves individuals with disabilities, empowering them to earn a paycheck and live as productive citizens in the greater Morris County area.
