The Affton Christian Church in St. Louis, MO hosts two USAgain collection bins. Reverend David Woodard is thrilled to be part of USAgain's fundraising and has his congregation excited too. In 2009, the Church collected 13,295 lbs of clothes and shoes in 2009 and is looking to collect even more this year.
Reverend Woodard mentions the threefold impact of participating in this fundraising program, saying, "Our church receives funds for renovations and charities; local community members get a convenient location to donate used clothes; and the people in the third world countries get access to good quality and affordable clothing."
Rev. Woodard believes that we all need to understand the harm we do to our environment before our hazardous activities cause severe consequences.
"We all should not only understand the broader picture of global warming but also try and help the less fortunate people around the world" says the Reverend. He feels the added advantage of red and white boxes is the excellent service levels provided by USAgain.
