Perhaps you will be doing some cleaning of closets, the garage or (gasp!) the kid’s rooms this Spring. Are you weeding out the winter clothes you no longer want? Please consider putting a pile of donations aside for the week of Earth Day, April 20-26. Green is good- let someone else get some use out of your unwanted belongings.
A to Z Literacy is partnering with Savers, a Crystal Lake thrift store to collect used items and turn them into cash for our mission. This thrift store chain will pay us by the pound for the goods we amass. Unfortunately, we cannot take furniture, liquids or tires.
Anytime during April 20-26, bring your items to Savers, 230 W Virginia St. (Rt. 14), Crystal Lake. Please make sure to mention that the items are to be donated for the A to Z Literacy Movement fundraiser. Along with your receipt, you’ll get a coupon to use on your next shopping trip to Saver’s.
