Do you have bags of unwanted clothing? Looking for a place to send them? Well, look no further! You will see "bins" located at both Old Fort Elementary and Old Fort High School. You may ask, how does this work? All you have to do is drop off men, women and children’s clothing, shoes, and textiles. The school earns money for each pound of recyclables collected. Then, the textiles are re-purposed, recycled, or reused. Not only are you helping the school earn money for student/staff events, you are helping the Earth. That's a win-win!
