We're Having Our Monthly Clothing & Textiles Drives!



We'll be at the Scandinavian Living Center on Saturday, August 19th from 9:00am - noon

The Scandi Center is located at 206 Waltham Street in West Newton.

We work with HELPSYthe largest clothing/textile collection recycling company on the East Coast. In 2021, they helped to divert over 30 million tons of waste. Helpsy accepts almost ANY
type of textile product regardless of condition: clothes (even single socks and ratty undies, as long as they're clean), small rugs, coats, shoes, handbags, stuffed animals, and more. 

Please click "Read More"  for a list of acceptable items.

If you'd like to volunteer, please email us at RotaryNewtonMA@gmail.com! There are two shifts: 9am - 11am and 10am - noon so you can help AND get done what you need to get done. Help out at one, some, or all - whatever works for you!

Next scheduled collections : Aug 19th and Oct 14th

All drives will be held at the Scandinavian Living Center, 206 Newton Street in West Newton.

This is also a fundraising opportunity for the Newton Rotary Foundation! HELPSY pays Rotary for each pound of clothing collected. 

Please tell your friends & family and bring us your stuff!
