Are you doing some Spring cleaning or just decluttering your house? Are you wondering where to donate your gently-used goods? DC Candlelighters has the answer for you. Donate your “Sweet Junk” to our FUNDraiser and support families fighting cancer.
Have you heard the saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure?” Well that definitely fits here. DC Candlelighters is partnering with Value Village Thrift Store to collect your gently-used men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, coats, hats, gloves & mittens, scarves, ties, socks, shoes & boots, belts, fashion accessories, handbags, wallets, backpacks, reusable bags, CD/DVDs, books, towels, sheets, comforters, blankets, pillows, linen, tablecloths, curtains, home decorative items, toys & games, knick-knacks, silverware, plates, dishes, glasses, pots & pans, electrical items, and small household appliances (no furniture), to raise funds. Items not accepted: mattresses, baby gear, auto parts, large appliances, large furniture, building materials, cleaning products, tires, and flammable materials.
This is a WIN WIN for everyone! You get to clean out your closets and donate to a great cause. Your unwanted items can help fund our organization! Our goal is to collect 1,500 full Large Yard Bags (avg. 20 lbs.) and 450 Medium boxes (household goods) and raise $6,000. Ask your friends and family to help. You will receive a donation receipt for your support.
Please use large yard bags for clothes and textiles and tightly packed boxes for small household goods. All items must be clean and in sellable condition. Drop off location for all dates: Knights of Columbus, 5115 Little Falls Road, Arlington, VA 22207 (In front of the Council Home.)
