Clothing drive keeps items out of dump and into use


Saturday was a good day to lose some clothes!  Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful hosted it's Summer Clothing Drive at nine area locations.

Clothes, linens, stuffed animals and other items that were gently used or new were accepted.  A spokesperson for KNIB says by donating, folks are helping keep these things out of landfills.

KNIB collects items for use both nationally and worldwide with your help.  Volunteers picked up what you dropped out Saturday from 9-2 at area locations.

If you're interested in volunteering for KNIB or donating you can use the following contact information:
