Upcoming: Second Chance Saturday Clothing Recycling

We posted about this before the holidays, but now that the clothing recycling program at Grand Army Plaza is starting, we figured that a reminder couldn't hurt. Important points from the organizers:
This pilot builds on the already successful project at the Union Square Greenmarket, where over 27,000 pounds of clothing were collected-diverting them from landfills and incinerators. The donation of these items helps support Goodwill's valuable programs, reduces export costs, and allows for the reuse of valuable clothing and textiles...Textile collections start January 5th, 2008 and will occur every Saturday through March 29, 2008, from 8 A.M to 4 P.M. at the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket. Acceptable donations include used clothing, shoes, boots, hats, jackets, towels, bedding, and linens. Tax receipts will be available upon request. The donation of these items helps support Goodwill's many programs that assist people with disabilities and other barriers to employment.
Sounds like a superb opportunity to clear out those drawers and closets.
