Second Chance Week! Donate new or gently used baby clothes...

October 12-19, 2013

Second Chance Week is a national public awareness campaign to promote the use of specific recycled items under the motto “Reuse, Repair, Resale and Donate”.

This year the City of Modesto, in partnership with Stanislaus County, will be collecting new and gently used baby clothes. All the items collected will be distributed through local non profit agencies who will give them to local residents and families in need throughout our community.

Please take the time to look through your children’s closets and donate to any one of our many collection sites. Your donations can truly make the difference and we look forward to providing much needed necessities for our children.

Look for donation bins at 1010 10th Street in downtown Modesto and these additional locations:
