Donate clothes for back-to-school drive

By Christian Jennings - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Goodwill donation centers want you to bring in your kids gently used clothes, so other children can have a "new to them" outfit for the new school year.

Goodwill Industries and Family circle magazine teamed up for the Back-to-School clothing drive.

Their goal is to collect 5-million pounds of clothes nationwide.

Here in Albany managers say the store stays busy, especially with children's clothes purchases.

There's always a need, especially when school starts.

"Everybody starts school and what's the first thing you think of? It's new supplies, new clothing. So they can come here and get good clothing, at a good price, and feel good about themselves," said Carol Ann Fields at the Albany Goodwill Store.

Goodwill in Albany says their donations were down for awhile but they recently noticed an increase.

The drive will run today through September 30th.
