The clothing drive completed a week ago at Rye Middle School collected 6,317 pounds – or just over three tons – of cloths. The clothing is collected by a company called Fashion Republic that specializes in processing used clothing and shipping it to people in need. They ship clothing to Poland, Republic of Georgia, Ghana, Liberia, Honduras, Nicaragua, Haiti, India, Mali, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Kenya. The clothing is sold at local markets and thrift stores at low, affordable prices.
This raised $ 921.21 or about $0.145 cents per pound for the school.
