Charities of Hope 2nd Annual Earth Day Throw Down begins this year on Monday April 17, 2017. Every school in the Hartford, Tolland and Middlesex Counties will have the opportunity to participate in an event to help in the effort to keep clothing (textiles) & shoes out of our Connecticut landfills.

Each school will register to hold a clothing and shoe collection drive during the week leading up to Earth Day April 22, 2017. The school can hold the event on one day or they can collect the clothing for the entire week. Our trucks will come pick up the collections and they will be weighed. Once the competition is completed we will tally up all the weights and will pay each school per pound.

Special Request - Sleeping Bags
We have a special request to all participating schools. We are collecting sleeping bags for the homeless in Hartford and would appreciate your support.

Everyone wins; Every school will receive money for the competition, the Landfill has less textiles to process and the Charities of Hope Domestic Abuse and Homeless programs benefit from the clothes collected. The school that collects the most will win an additional $150.
