St. Pauly Textile has given us the annual update from our clothing donation shed…
In 2018 we collected approximately 9,217 clothing items which they estimate was enough to clothe 1,118 people. The clothing is being used right now by people in one or more of 44 different countries, including the US.
Through our partnership with St. Pauly CFCF raised $550.29 through the shed in 2018.
We encourage you to consider donating your Canal Fulton Christian Fellowship (CFCF) sponsors a "clothing drop off shed" as a fundraiser and service to the community. The shed is provided by St. Pauly Textile who installed one of their clothing collection sheds (pictured above) at the church (2021 Locust St. S. in Canal Fulton) for the community to use as a drop off for clothing, bedding, shoes andother items. The clothing will be distributed all over the United States and world to those who can use it. CFCF will in turn receive 4 cents for every pound of clothing that is donated.
This program keeps clothing out of the landfill, helps out those in need, and helps out CFCF with funding.
