Did you know nylon clothes take about 30-40 years to decompose in a landfill and leather shoes can take between 25-40? If you have unwanted clothing items in your wardrobe that are in good condition, consider donating them to the Pop-Up Clothing Closet. As part of the Earth Day 2020 Celebration at IVCC, we’ll have a collection bin in the cafeteria foyer near the stairwell until March 20. Items we’re seeking are all sizes of men’s and women’s career clothing, t-shirts, sweatshirts, jeans, shorts, ties, shoes and accessories. New, unused travel-sized bottles of shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, soaps and lotions will also be collected. Last year’s pop-up provided our students with free business attire to help them look their best for interviews after the Job Fair and we wanted to expand the event to include general clothing for those in need. The pop-up hours will be 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, March 26 and 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, March 27 in CTC125. Remaining items will be donated to Lily Pads in Peru. Contact carey_burns@ivcc.edu or kimberly_herout@ivcc.edu for information.
