Clothing to Cash

Remember to deposit any old clothing in the Clothing to Cash bin at the entrance to the parking lot. This is an easy way for us to raise funds for the Maryvale PTA. We get paid for every pound of textiles that gets donated to that box.

All collected clothing in:

  • good or better condition is given a second life at thrift stores here in the U.S.
  • less than good condition will be repurposed (I.E. items worn out could be turned into rags )
  • poor condition or less will be processed for recycling

Recycling happens as the last resort. They accept ALL Clothing, in ALL Conditions; this is what makes Clothing to Cash unique.

Box Tops

Please continue sending in Box Tops for Education. The two grades (K-2nd and 3rd-5th) with the most box tops will receive a sweet treat!
