New organization to run its first clothing drive next week

Mayor Byron W. Brown will join the newly formed Western New York Coalition for Donated Goods in hosting the organization’s first clothing drive from noon to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday in Niagara Square.

The coalition will follow up by collecting unwanted clothes from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday to Aug. 29 at Walden Galleria in Cheektowaga. Drop-offs can be made in the parking lot near Sears and inside the mall near the Apple store. Participants will receive a Galleria coupon book.

The coalition – which includes Goodwill, the Salvation Army, Buffalo City Mission, AMVETS and Hearts for the Homeless – seeks to benefit the community and the environment by encouraging donations of clothing and other items that might otherwise be thrown away.
