Community members and Neighbors are invited to donate gently-used clothing and small household items at 10th Street Community Park’s first annual Donation Drive, to be held Sat. June 4th from 10 am – 1 pm at 10th Street Community Park on 10th St NW between L and M St’s NW in Washington, DC. Acceptable donations include clothing, shoes, accessories, linens, books, and small household items (no furniture).
The drive’s goal is to raise funds to support The Friends of the Tenth Street Park which ensures the park is well managed, and beautifully ornamented with various annual and perennial flowers, trees and shrubs. Raised funds also go towards several events during the spring, summer and fall months for the benefit of the local community – including Yoga in the Park, Outdoor Movies, Concerts and Children’s Activities.
All goods collected through the Donation Drive fundraiser program are sold to Savers, the parent company to thrift stores like Value Village, Unique, and Savers. They pay us by the pound for every qualifying donation received. In turn, these items help keep their floors freshly stocked.
Tax receipts for all donations will be provided on site.
