There’s no time like the present to clean out your closets and cupboards and donate your old gently used clothing, shoes, accessories, books, blankets, toys, small appliances and other home goods to the Legacy Bridges Foundation, Inc. The last Clothing Donation Drive-Thru Event held on Saturday, January 7th, 2023 from 9:00a.m. to 2:00p.m. at Entrepreneur High School in Fontana was a huge success.
“Although our next scheduled drive-thru event will be postponed due to the upcoming storm, we still want to give community members an opportunity to participate,” said Executive Director Melanee Stovall. “Many of us have an abundance of clothing that we no longer wear or an overflow of shoes, accessories and other items that we just don’t know what to do with. Here’s an opportunity to give those unwanted items a new home. If you haven’t already done so, sort through your closets and cupboards and set aside these items, then call, text, or email us to coordinate drop-off/pick-up,” she said.
The Legacy Bridges Foundation, Inc. (LBF) is a California 501(c)3 nonprofit public benefit corporation founded to support individuals and families who suffer from epilepsy and other seizure related disorders. LBF’s mission is to raise awareness of the disease of epilepsy and other seizure related disorders, shine a light for those individuals and families affected, and partner with other organizations to find a cure.
According to the Epilepsy Foundation, “epilepsy affects 1 out of every 26 individuals; 3.4 million people nationwide, more than 65 million people globally, and 150,000 new cases are diagnosed in the United States each year.”
“This is a unique two-fold opportunity that we strongly encourage you to participate in, as it will free up space in your homes and allow you to support a local nonprofit organization doing tremendous work,” said Volunteer Director Melody Solomon. “Items we accept include: gently used clothing, shoes, accessories, books, blankets, small appliances and other home goods. We cannot accept the following: encyclopedias, hazardous or construction materials, or weapons. Please use bags for clothes and textiles and tightly packed boxes for small household goods. All items must be in clean condition,” she added.
