Less Stuff, More Room! (Pt 2)

Part 2 of a series designed to help you find opportunities to free yourself from the stuff that clutters your home and your head.

Say NO to the landfill, and YES to reusing and recycling.

None of us wants to add to the landfill in Arlington, Oregon (that’s where Seattle’s trash goes). For anything with any kind of life left in it, we want to find a recipient, but this can be really hard for things that don’t go in our curbside recycling bin. Or maybe Goodwill isn’t where you want your “stuff” to go. So, here is a helpful idea for dealing with your stuff. And stay tuned … with each upcoming newsletter we’ll share more ways for you to get rid of your stuff.

The Bridge Care Center is a bridge to resources, relationships, and hope 
for women and men experiencing lack of housing and economic hardship in the Ballard area of Seattle. They are working hard to connect our neighbors who live outside to the resources they need, specifically clothing, hygiene items, and water.

The items most needed as we move into colder weather are men’s and women’s sweatshirts, jackets and coats of any kind, and men’s belts and pants with waist size 30″-38″ (any lengths). We have occasional drop off days and we announce the days and times on facebook.com/bridgecarecenter. You can also email info@bridgecarecenter.org to arrange a porch pick up of your donations.  The Bridge is currently unable to accept donations other than winter wear, and men’s belts and pants.
