Catholic girls collect clothes for ACLD

Members of the Catholic Girls’ Court at St. Bernard Parish in Levittown with Rev. Ralph Sommer, pastor and members of the ReWearAble team filled a truck with materials to recycle and reuse.

During a collection of used clothing and other items, the Court of Catholic Girls No. 1690 of the Parish of Saint Bernard collected 210 bags of materials weighing 4,840 pounds.

Items collected included clothes, shoes, handbags, sheets, belts, towels, coats, swimsuits, blankets and baseball caps. The destination of the collection is an affiliate of the ACLD (Adults and Children With Learning Disabilities) program called ReWearAble.

The event was chaired by Susan Maher and Louise Cassano. “It was a great collection for a very worthy cause,” said Maher.

“ReWearAble is a unique organization that serves its people in many ways through the employment and reuse of materials that help support other worthy causes,” commented Cassano.

ReWearAble employees sort it out internally, making sure everything collected is prepared for reuse or reuse. ReWearable accepts clothing in all conditions and of all types and sizes.
