The Goodthrift partnership program is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Here is a general idea of how a Clothing Drive goes:
1. Set up a "Clothing Drive" in which students' families donate their used, unwanted clothes, household items, toys and bikes. You can have your drive run for as long as you think necessary for your school, based on size, number of students, etc.
2. We design a full-color, customized flier that has important details for you to use in advertising your Drive, as well as a black-and-white flier to distribute to the students, staff or members. In the weeks leading up to and during the Drive, do your best to spread the word far and wide.
Signs, posters, Facebook, Craigslist, the school/organization's website, and everywhere in between! The more people who hear about it and bring their stuff, the better outcome for your school or organization!
3. The donations will be dropped off at a Drop-off Site that is specified in the flier. Then, we come at the end of the Drive with our truck and collect the items, and based on the total weight of the collected items, we will send a check to the school or club to support their activities.
Lastly, you receive your check, and schedule your next Used Clothing Drive Fundraiser. It's that simple.
The program is fun, effective, and very successful. It gives students a hands-on experience in recycling while learning environmental awareness. It also raises funds for the school with very little effort, and, best of all-- at no cost!
