Talbot Hill Elementary School’s Parent-Teacher Organization will partner with Clothes for the Cause, a fundraising company that collects clothes in exchange for cash, for an event to raise money for staff appreciation, art docent programs and granting teacher classroom wishes.

The event is 8 to 10:30 a.m., Saturday, Feb. 28, at the school, 2300 Talbot Road S.

The donations will benefit Talbot Hill Elementary. Following the clothing drive, Clothes for the Cause will pick up the donations and provide Talbot Hill Elementary School PTO with the total of their fundraising effort, measured in dollars per pound.

“We are thrilled to be able to work with Talbot Hill Elementary PTO,” said Joyce Showatler, of Clothes for the Cause. “Clothes for the Cause and Talbot Hill Elementary PTO make it easy for everyone in our community to contribute by collecting things, free of charge, that our friends, family and neighbors already have in their houses.”

Talbot Hill Elementary PTO is a non profit organization consisting of volunteer parents working together with the teachers for the benefit of the school and the Talbot Hill students. Through events, Clothes for the Cause gives community groups – churches, sports teams, school bands, and others – the opportunity to turn their friends and families’ unwanted clothes into cash, while promoting sustainability and charitable acts in their community.

In addition to garments, Clothes for the Cause accepts pairs of shoes, hats, gloves, towels, sheets, blankets, quilts, drapery, purses, belts, rugs and stuffed animals.

Unlike the quintessential fundraiser that asks people to buy candy bars, flower bulbs or candles, Clothes for the Cause assists community groups and youth and makes a positive impact on the environment and in-need communities, without charging event participants a cent. Instead of decaying in landfills, donated items are re-worn, reused or ethically recycled both in the United States and abroad, based on best use.
