Dear Friend of the Volunteer Firefighters Association:
Textile Recovery Services, funds financial assistance to charitable causes in a unique one of a kind way. Our fund raising is generated through the collection and recycling of products such as use clothing, toys stuffed animals and
other recyclable materials. Monitored recycling containers are placed in public places. That which is collected is recycled and the revenue generated is donated to local charitable causes.
Our Used Clothing Collection Recycling Program provides used or unwanted clothing to Third World countries. The financially disadvantaged are able to acquire used clothing at a fraction of its original cost, thereby providing wearing
apparel to those who cannot afford to buy new. An additional percentage of clothing collected is donated to worthy causes. The balance is truly recycled by being reduced to cutting cloth and fibers, thereby completing the recycling cycle. Participation in the recycling program diverts tons of textile products that otherwise might end up in a landfill.
The following are a few examples of what the Firefighter’s Associations have accomplished with funds derived from our clothing bin programs:
*New Recruit Training
*Fire Safety Building Communications
*Funding For County
*Burn Fund and State Conventions
