Long Beach Island PTA Holds Clothing Drive Fundraiser Oct. 20

Oct 03, 2018

Members of the community are encouraged to bring used clothes and accessories to the Ethel A. Jacobsen Elementary School parking lot from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20, as part of a fundraiser to benefit the Parent Teacher Association of the Long Beach Island Consolidated School District. According to Lara Addiego and Colette Southwick, who chair the drive, the group is collecting wearable, usable clothing of all sizes, as well as shoes, belts, handbags, stuffed animals, and linens such as towels, bedding and curtains.

The following items are no longer accepted: housewares, appliances, toys, furniture, rugs and baby items. Books, CDs and DVDs are also not accepted.

The PTA asks that all items be placed in tightly tied plastic bags.

“Our school will receive money for every pound we collected,” said the drive co-chairs, “so the more the better.

“We want the things you don’t!”

Proceeds go directly to the LBI PTA for every pound collected. Tax receipts will be issued.

The E.J. School is located at 200 South Barnegat Ave. in Surf City. —J.K.-H.
