Cleaning out your closets? You can now bring used clothing donations to Northminster where we have partnered with St. Pauly Textile, Inc. who has provided a wood-frame clothing drop-off shed (located in the lower parking lot) for community use.

This shed is designed to give community members a uniquely clean, convenient, and well-cared-for option to donate their used clothing to.  St. Pauly Textile, Inc. partners with businesses and various organizations to distribute donated items both here in the U.S. and worldwide, where they’re ultimately re-worn by people who need them.  Northminster receives funding for donated clothing, and additionally has the option to use donations to serve community needs.

With over 1,300 clothing drop-off sheds in place, St. Pauly Textile, Inc. collects over 150,000 pounds of clothing every day and estimates that this clothing ends up in 44 different countries (including the U.S.) yearly.  In 2022, the company was able to help keep over 68 million articles of clothing out of landfills, which clothed an estimated 8.3 million people worldwide. The company was founded in 1996 and is an A+ rated member of the Better Business Bureau.

Accepted items (in good condition) include clothing, shoes, belts, purses, blankets, sheets, curtains, pillowcases, and stuffed animals.
