Pius X newest drop-off site for clothing donations to Catholic Social Services

Pius X and Catholic Social Services have partnered to establish a clothing donation drop-off site in the east parking lot at the school. Recycled clothes can be sold to help bring funds to help the poor, in addition to helping students attending Pius X. Every donated piece of clothing is reviewed to determine if it can sell, be given away, or recycled. Some clothes will be sold in the thrift stores in Lincoln, Hastings and Imperial. And some will be given away. The rest can be recycled and sold to a distributor that in turn breaks down the threads and re-uses the cloth. This allows all of us to clothe the naked and also, following the first words of God, to subdue the earth. As Pope Francis has pointed out in Laudato si we are called to be prudent caretakers of our resources and recycling clothing gives us an opportunity
