Closets To Cash, Nationwide Recycled Clothing Fundraiser Opportunity for Schools and Non-Profit Groups, Introduced at National PTA Convention
Villa Rica, GA (PRWEB) June 26, 2014
The next fundraising campaign for your child’s school or other non-profit group doesn’t have to be such a dreaded event any longer.
Every parent who has had to purchase the unsold candy bars or popcorn their child has left after a fundraising campaign will appreciate the latest option now available on a nationwide basis for non-profit organizations to fundraise. Introduced last week at the National PTA convention in Austin, TX, Closets to Cash offers a completely turnkey clothing recycling fundraising program that requires no selling, no order taking and maybe best of all…no purchases from members’ own pockets. What makes the Closets to Cash program different is it is the first available on a nationwide basis so both big city and small town schools or groups can participate.
Closets to Cash is the brainchild of Robert Dailey III, president of one of the largest textile wiping cloth suppliers in the United States, Intex, headquartered just outside of Atlanta, GA. Intex sells a variety of textile wiping products into major US retailers and paint supply stores including wipers made from recycled clothing. As a way to increase the raw material supply for their wiping products, Dailey created a program that offers any sized non-profit group the ability to participate in the massive clothing recycling system that today is dominated by large non-profits like Goodwill and the Salvation Army among others.
Closets to Cash is the first company of its type to provide virtually all of the elements necessary to run an effective used clothing collection campaign anywhere in the US including supplies like plastic bags and boxes, member training materials, donor handouts and even scales to weigh the collected clothing; all at no cost to the organization. Closets to Cash also provides a unique no-cost logistics system for the organization to store and transport the used clothing to one of Intex’s processing facilities as the goods are collected by the group.
According to Dailey, “Textile recycling is not a new concept. In fact, it is a very large industry today across the country. We created a unique program involving enhanced support and logistics tools so that any school or group could join in the recycling effort and receive similar benefits as large non-profits through funds we pay for the collected materials. We made it simple and easy for the school or group to pull off. And especially for schools, it’s a great way to get kids and parents involved in recycling and a fundraising project with benefits that extend beyond just raising money.”
Closets to Cash National Fundraiser Coordinator Michele Dolgos added, “Closets to Cash helps all involved; the donor doesn’t have to haul their closet clutter to a bin or charity drop-off, the group raises funds without asking anyone for a penny out of their pocket, and the community doesn’t have to deal with discarded clothing in their waste hauling systems or landfills. It’s a win-win-win.”
