You may have noticed the large clothing donation box located outside of the student entrance that popped up over the break. Steilacoom’s band department has decided to have a clothing donation box placed on campus to work as a fundraiser to raise money for certain events that the band participates in. The drop box is apart of the company USAgain, which works towards reducing textile waste in hopes to save landfill space and give clothes a second life. Any unwanted textiles and clothing in good condition can be dropped off and a group will come around once a week to empty it out.

Mr. Vegh, the school’s band teacher, listed out an array of things that can be donated saying, “You can donate clothing, car seats, shoes with fabric on them, and drapes. Anything with cloth basically.”

The money made from this fundraiser will go towards the band’s travel budget, more specifically towards the Hollywood band trip that approximately fifty-five band students will be attending during spring break.  

Mr. Vegh commented, “They give us like five cents per a pound and they also give us a little bit for having the box out there in the first place, so it’s hard for me to guess how much we’ll make.”

The plan is to have the box out at least till the end of the year so there’s plenty of time to gather your textiles and contribute to the cause. Support the band and donate today!
