Sustainable Clothing Drive

Sustainability continues to be a significant area of focus for the university and for the Vice-Principal (Finance and Administration) – VPFA portfolio.  In support of this goal, the Office of the VPFA is hosting a Sustainable Clothing Drive to help recycle gently used clothing and accessories at affordable prices. This event will take place on March 12 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm at the Common Ground. The Common Ground has offered 20% off at The Brew to anyone who makes a purchase that day, and they would also appreciate donations of travel mugs.

All proceeds will go to Big Spoon Lil Spoon, a non-profit established in 2018 by second-year Queen’s students, that involves workshops for children with disabilities.

If you have any gently-used clothing, accessories, and travel mugs that you would like to donate, please contact Victoria Preston-Walker (victoria.prestonwalker@queensu.ca). Donations will be accepted until March 11th at noon. Any unpurchased clothing will be donated to Loving Hands in Kingston.
