Great Closet Clean-Out to support Bay athletics

The Bay Rockets Association is again conducting its clothing collection drive, The Great Closet Clean-Out, Sept. 25-27. All funds raised will benefit both Bay Rocket Athletics and Easter Seals Northern Ohio. Bay Rocket Athletics relies on fundraising to ensure that Bay Village Schools can maintain athletic teams from 7th to 12th grades. Easter Seals Northern Ohio uses these funds to serve over 15,000 people with disabilities. This clothing drive is an innovative way for these organizations to raise funds without having to sell anything.

Bay Rockets Association will be compensated based on the number of pounds of cloth collected. Acceptable items include: clothing, comforters, towels, shoes and purses. Mattresses are not being accepted. Items can be in any condition. All donations will be resold, reused or recycled.

Donations can be dropped off at Bay Middle School, 27725 Wolf Road, and Bay High School, 29230 Wolf Road. Volunteers will be available to assist donors during the drop-off times: Friday, Sept. 25, 3-7 p.m.; Saturday, Sept. 26, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; and Sunday, Sept. 27, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

Every bag donated earns a raffle ticket. Prizes include $50 cash or gift cards to local establishments. Tax receipts and raffle tickets will be available at the trucks during the drive-up and drop-off hours. Clean out your closets and support these organizations!
