Do you have a good business suit that you arent wearing anymore? If so, donate it to the Boise Rescue Mission by leaving it at either Clothesline Cleaners location in September.
Clothesline Cleaners, which has a delivery service in Boise and Meridian, will also pick up donated clothing from homes or businesses at no charge.
We have a work search program for menm and we really can use professional-type office clothing for them, said Megan Korthals, spokeswoman for the Rescue Mission. We enjoy working with local businesses like Clothesline who can help us meet the great need for assisting people trying to get back on their feet. Any donations will be put to good use.
All donations should be appropriate to wear to work, as well as clean, stylish and in good condition. Donors are asked to provide all garments on hangers, as they will be made available to job seekers immediately.
Call 342-0538 to schedule a pickup. Clothing for pickup should be placed on the porch in a plastic bag marked Rescue Mission.
Suits may also be left at the Clothesline Cleaners at Orchard and Franklin roads in Boise, or at Meridian and Overland roads in Meridian, until close of business Saturday, Sept. 29.
Clothesline said it will donate services for any suits that need cleaning. During a similar drive last year,, Clothesline customers donated nearly 800 suits, pants, shirts, shoes and accessories to the Mission.
Helping professionals look their best is a core part of our business. We know many of our customers have clothing they could donate to help others, and we are asking them to donate, said Gary McCracken, owner of Clothesline Cleaners. Also, people occasionally abandon perfectly good items of clothing with us, and we are pleased to work with the Rescue Mission, which can get the clothing directly into the hands of job seekers who need them.
