On Wednesday, February 26th, after being rescheduled due to snow, the WELL Service Warriors spent two hours sorting clothes for local organization Note in the Pocket.

Note in the Pocket is a Raleigh nonprofit that provides needed clothing to children who are identified by various schools and social service agencies in the community as impoverished or homeless and needing clothing to wear to school.

The Service Warriors had quite a task in front of them – dozens of bags filled with clothes. First, to see if they pass quality inspection and could be worn or if they would go to recycling. Note in the Pocket appreciates even the clothing they have to recycle because of stains or rips—they can sell this clothing for recycling which means it doesn’t go into the landfill and they are able to make $0.12 a pound which they use to purchase new socks, underwear and shoes. The second step is to sort and fold the good items by category – girls, boy, men, women.

In the end, the WELL Service Warriors were able to help a small nonprofit and make a difference in Wake County. If you are looking for a place to donate your old and used clothing, please consider Note in the Pocket. Learn more about them and how to donate at their website: www.noteinthepocket.org
