Recyclothes Event Making a Difference in Albuquerque Children’s Lives

Clothing Drive Looking For Donations of Clean, Gently-Used Clothes For Students.

Keep Albuquerque Beautiful, a program of the City of Albuquerque Solid Waste Management Department, and Locker 505 are teaming up to sponsor the Ninth Annual Recyclothes event on June 5 at Hinkle Family Fun Center.

Each year, thousands of students in the greater Albuquerque area and their families go without the basic life necessities. Recyclothes is a clothing drive designed to help meet these needs. All donations will be delivered to the Locker 505 Clothing Bank. The Clothing Bank partners with Albuquerque Public Schools to make sure students in need have clothes, shoes, undergarments, and coats so they can focus on learning.

This year, go green and spring clean! As you organize your closets, dresser drawers, and even your garages, set aside clean, gently-used clothing to benefit the lives of Albuquerque students. You can help make a difference in a child’s life.

Please bring your gently used clothing for K-12 students to Hinkle Family Fun Center from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 5. In honor of National Donut Day, there will be free pre-packaged donuts while supplies last.
