ORR High School DECA club to hold clothing and textile drive

Jul 25, 2021

Out with the old and in with the new!

ORR High School’s DECA club is holding a clothing drive and is looking for donations of unwanted textiles.

The entrepreneurship club has a partnership with Bay State Textiles to motivate future business leaders to protect the environment.

They will collect clothing in bins at Old Rochester High School, Center School, Old Hammondtown, Rochester Memorial, and Sippican Elementary, which will then be weighed and donated in part to the club.

The club will use the money raised to educate themselves on business interaction and entrepreneurship, and to travel to competitions.

The following can be put in the bins in any condition, old or new, as long as it’s clean and dry: Footwear (shoes, boots, sneakers, heels, work boots, cleats, pumps, dress boots, slippers, sandals, winter boots, flip ­flops); clothing (shirts, pants, undergarments, sweaters, jeans, socks, sweatshirts, sweatpants, T-shirts, dresses, skirts, slips, tank tops, shorts, pajamas, blazers, coats); accessories (hats, gloves, scarves, handbags, duffle bags, tote bags, belts, ties, bathrobes); linens (sheets, pillows, comforters, blankets, towels, dish towels, throw rugs, draperies, table linens, placemats); and stuffed animals in any condition.

Please bag items.
