Belden UMC is proud to be new members of the St. Pauly’s Textiles organization. St. Pauly’s is a company dedicated to providing clothing for people around the world. Collection sheds are placed at churches and other organizations for community members to drop off gently worn clothing. For hosting a shed, the church will receive $.04 per pound of clothing donated. On average, churches our size can generate $30-50 each month. Donated items should be placed in a plastic bag and every week St. Pauly’s will come and retrieve the donations from the shed. We can expect to receive a shed toward the end of May.
What to Donate:
Used Clothing, shoes, sneakers, belts, purses, linens, pillowcases, blankets, curtains, and stuffed animals.
What NOT to Donate:
Furniture, electronics, household items, books, toys, garbage, pillows, rags, and fabric scraps.
