Donations to benefit Nikola Tesla STEM High School Grad Night

Nikola Tesla STEM High School partners with Clothes for the Cause, a fundraising company that collects clothes in exchange for cash, for an event to raise money for Grad Night. Nikola Tesla STEM High School is hosting the clothing and textile drive, accepting clothing and shoes of any kind, in any condition, from NOW until January 31, 2015. Following the clothing drive, Clothes for the Cause will pick up the donations and provide Tesla STEM High School with the total of their fundraising effort, measured in dollars per pound.

STEM HS is raising funds for the Senior Class of 2015 Graduation Night. This will be the first graduating class for Nikola Tesla STEM High School.

“We are thrilled to be able to help STEM High School in its time of need,” said Susan Hovey. “Clothes for the Cause and STEM HS make it easy for everyone in our community to contribute by collecting things, free of charge, that our friends, family and neighbors already have in their houses.”

January 28th through January 31st Tesla STEM HS drop off location located at 4301 228th Ave N.E., Redmond, WA 98053, is collecting donations from between 10am and 2pm. In addition to garments, Clothes for the Cause accepts pairs of shoes, hats, gloves, towels, sheets, blankets, quilts, drapery, purses, belts, rugs and stuffed animals.

Through events, Clothes for the Cause gives community groups – churches, sports teams, school bands, and others – the opportunity to turn their friends and families’ unwanted clothes into cash, while promoting sustainability and charitable acts in their community.

Unlike the quintessential fundraiser that asks people to buy candy bars, flower bulbs or candles, Clothes for the Cause assists community groups and youth and makes a positive impact on the environment and in-need communities, without charging event participants a cent. Instead of decaying in landfills, donated items are re-worn, reused or ethically recycled both in the United States and abroad, based on best use.

Clothes for the Cause provides all necessary tools and materials to host a successful fundraiser, including informational brochures, letters and flyers to distribute to the community members, tired-and-true promotion tactics, and convenient pickup of donated items at the close of the fundraiser. Event organizers can structure their events to raise a wide range of funds to support a variety of community projects – from purchasing new soccer jerseys to rebuilding a community.
