The clothing drive concludes a month-long drive by Live Green and Repax. Since mid-March, DC residents have been dropping off clothes in bins at green businesses and apartment buildings throughout the city as part of the FWD: Your Fashion Clothing Drive.

More than 5,000 lbs of donations have been collected, making this drive DC’s largest community clothing drive in support of Goodwill. As part of Live Green and Clean Currents’ Green Rush, an eco-themed scavenger hunt, participants will help to deliver the donations to Goodwill’s truck.

About Saturday’s Green Rush Scavenger Hunt

Green Rush is sponsored by two local entities — Live Green and Clean Currents (which sells wind power). Green Rush begins at Logan Circle at 2:30 pm and ends with a party at 5:30 pm at Liv at 2001 11th Street NW. (You can also get more information on the Live Green Facebook page.)

Teams of two to five people will compete in challenges and decode clues for a chance to win a $1,000 Grand Prize. You need to register and buy tickets for the scavenger hunt. There are also volunteer opportunities if you don’t want to take part in the hunt.

Other local businesses helping sponsor the event are The Bike Rack, Cafe Green, Base Camp and Local 16.
