A Pound of Clothing to Change a Life

On Monday, May 15th, CIL began its first ever clothing drive. Partnering with Florida Clothing Drive, the Center for Independent Living in Central Florida is accepting gently used clothing donations through Thursday, May 25th. For every pound of clothing donated CIL will receive $.15. Since starting the drive, CIL has collected over 30 pounds of clothing, and while that may not seem like a lot on it’s own, small amounts add up significantly over time. Every cent matters when breaking down the barriers that exclude people from their independence, meaning that even small donations are helpful.

There is still time to drop off your clothing donation to our Winter Park Office through Thursday, May 25th.

For questions or more information please contact Development Director Brittany Pilcher at 407-623-1070 x131 or by email at bpilcher@cilorlando.org
