Bag2School textile fundraiser
Get your guilt-free purge on now.


Doing a year-end clothing and textile purge? Drop off previously enjoyed clothing and textiles in the Duke foyer where they will be weighed and exchanged for cash at the current market rate. Clothing of all sorts welcomed, including shoes, belts, linens, towels etc - no quilts or pillows please. The more we collect, the more $ we raise while helping to divert textiles from landfills.
