Clothing Drive fundraiser for SCM Medical Missions, Essentials First and MAPS-MCRC. June 24, 2023 at the MAPS Redmond location.
Tag: clothing drive
SCM recently worked with the Muslim Community Resource Center (MCRC) in Redmond, WA to hold a clothing drive to raise funds for our food aid program. The drive, held on February 11th, brought in over 25,000 pounds of clothing and other soft household goods! Good will, whom we are partnering with, will be sending a check to SCM for over $5000 that will be used to buy food for refugees in Greece and Jordan.
SCM gives a big thank you to the MCRC and the entire community that participated and donated to this drive. The refugees thank you, and we are proud of all your efforts to support the refugees in need.
Thank you to everyone who helped and donated to our clothing and household goods drive that just wrapped up yesterday (May 31). It was a huge success, here are the totals:
12,376 pounds of soft goods/clothing turned in yesterday
1102 pounds of soft goods/clothing turned in last week
439 pounds of hard goods, books, household items
Total = 13,917 pounds!!!!
Value Village will be giving SCM just over $2700, that will be put to good use right away on our programs to help refugees in Jordan. The money will go to the Ramadan Food Drive to provide food for the refugee families. $31 buys a box of staples and a small amount of meat to feed one family for a month.
Thank you to all of our drop off locations: MAPS/MCRC in Redmond, Masjid Dar al-Arqam in Lynnwood, and Miro Tea in Ballard. Thank you to all the volunteers who came out to help load, drive, unload the trucks!
And thank you to Value Village for having this program that helps us raise much needed funds! They are a pleasure to work with and Bernice is always so helpful!
