Clean Out the Closet and Help Local Families!

Those of you near Richmond, Va, please consider donating your clothes, especially athletic clothing and shoes, to the Giving Heart organization for this week's Got You Covered clothing drive. I got involved with this organization as part of the "Let's Move in Schools" campaign to help kids get active. One branch of their program collects new or gently used children's athletic shoes. This weekend's drive will accept shoes as well as many other types of donations.

Saturday, August 6, 2011 - Distribution of Clothing
Richmond Raceway Complex - Colonial Building, 600 E. Laburnum Avenue, Richmond, Va.

Invited Guests:  1 pm to 3 pm | Public Hours:  3:30 pm to 6:00 pm

Meet me on Tuesday, August 2 from 1:30-3:30pm as I assist in collecting donations at the drop off location (see below) and again at the Raceway for the distribution from 3:30-4:00pm.

DONATE: New and gently used clothing, shoes and accessories are accepted. This year we are especially interested in clothing
to benefit the youth of our community. Please consider making donations of items that can be worn with pride. If in doubt, throw it out. Items should be clean, in good condition, classy and/or current in nature. We greatly appreciate your efforts in keeping your donated pieces together to ensure that they are given out in their entirety. We welcome suits, ensemble pieces and dresses on hangers to properly display them to our guests.
