Newman Congregational Church, UCC Continues to Collect Donations!


Newman Congregational Church, UCC is seeking clothing donations from community members. Newman UCC has been partnering with St. Pauly Textile Inc. to collect used clothing for over the past year. St. Pauly Textile Inc. works with non-profit organizations , like Newman UCC , to set up used clothing drop off sheds designed to give community members a clean, attractive, and well-monitored place to donate gently used textile items, which are then distributed both here in the U.S. and worldwide to people who need them.

With a strong call to mission and care for all of Creation, Newman UCC, an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ, is excited to continue to host a St. Pauly's Clothing Donation Shed and extends an invitation to one and all to join in our shared mission by recycling old clothing in this way.

St. Pauly Textile, Inc. collects over 120,000 pounds of clothing every day and estimates that this clothing ends up in 44 different countries (including the United States) yearly. In 2017, the company was able to help keep over 20 million articles of clothing out of landfills. The company was founded 22 years ago in Rochester, NY and is an A+ rated member of the Better Business Bureau.
Accepted items include clothing, shoes, sneakers, belts, purses, blankets, sheets, drapes, linens, pillowcases and stuffed animals. Donors are asked to donate items in a plastic bag to protect against dirt and the elements. There is a small box on the shed that contains receipts to help donors take a tax deduction.

Consider donating your used clothing items today.

Newman Congregational Church, United Church of Christ is located at 100 Newman Avenue, Rumford, RI 02916
