How have you been spending your quarantine hours? Tackling your spring cleaning, perhaps? Now’s the time to do it, that’s for sure. Did you find clothes that don’t fit you or your family anymore? Want to update your wardrobe but need to make room first? Take all of your gently used items to the Westfield Area Y Clothing Drive 2020. Then, they’ll take it from there.
What: Clothing Drive
Where: Westfield Area Y (422 E Broad St)
When: Wednesday, June 3rd, 7:30 am to 2:30 pm
Westfield Area Y Clothing Drive 2020
Don’t throw out items you no longer have a use for. Give them a new purpose by donating them to the Y’s clothing drive on June 3rd. Our local YMCA accepts clothing, shoes, accessories (belts, bags, hats, etc.), bedding, towels, and even stuffed animals and small plastic toys for their clothing drive. All items received will be sold at a later date. Proceeds from the sale directly benefit their financial assistance program. So, if you’ve gained a “quarantine 15” and no longer fit into some of your clothes or your children no longer play with certain toys and they just seem to take up space in your home, bring them to the YMCA so that another family can get some use out of them.
Westfield Area Y’s Financial Assistance Program
The Y believes that no one should be turned away from utilizing their services, especially if they experience a financial hardship of any kind. Therefore, they award scholarships for community members in need to offset membership fees. These scholarships are used for day care, child care after school, day camps in the summertime, sports, and aquatic classes as well as membership fees.
