Clothing shed at First Presbyterian of Delhi reopens!

The clothing donation shed at First Presbyterian Church of Delhi, which was temporarily closed due to global effects of the pandemic, has now been reopened to the public.

If you’re not familiar with the clothing donation shed, it’s designed to give community members a uniquely clean, convenient, and well-cared-for option to donate their used clothing to. St. Pauly Textile Inc., the company that has provided the shed, partners with businesses and various organizations to distribute donated items both here in the U.S. and worldwide, where they’re ultimately re-worn by people who need them. First Presbyterian Church of Delhi receives funding for donated clothing, and additionally has the option to use donations to serve community needs.

With over 1,300 clothing drop-off sheds in place, St. Pauly Textile Inc. collects over 90,000 pounds of clothing every day and estimates that this clothing ends up in 44 different countries (including the U.S.) yearly. In 2019, the company was able to help keep over 20 million articles of clothing out of landfills, which clothed an estimated 2.5 million people worldwide. The company was founded in 1996 and is an A+ rated member of the Better Business Bureau.

Accepted items: clothing, shoes, belts, purses, blankets, sheets, curtains, pillowcases, and stuffed animals.

 

The used clothing drop-off shed is located at the rear of the parking lot of the First Presbyterian Church of Delhi here at 4 Clinton Street. The items are used to support the mission owrk of the church.
