A Spring Cleaning with Meaning Clothing Drive in support of the Roots of Empathy program will take place on Saturday April 1st, 2017.

Between 9 am and 3 pm next Saturday, drop off Men’s, Women’s and Children’s Clothing including Dresses, Pants, Shirts, Shoes, Shorts, and Sweaters. Other acceptable items include Purses, Belts, Linens, Blankets, Towels and Stuffies. Drop offs can be made at the following locations:

Roots of Empathy is working with the New Brunswick Association of Community Living (NBACL) to collect garbage bags of used clothing and other goods listed above. NBACL will provide a monetary contribution to Roots of Empathy for each bag collected. The money received will be used to increase the number of Roots of Empathy programs in our area.

If each person fills at least one garbage bag, we can make a difference for our children in our area, as well as children and families with an intellectual disability in New Brunswick!
