Mission Recycle is Peopleís City Missionís recycling program. Over the last several years, the Mission has been asking the community to donate all of their used items that they no longer need to the Homeless Prevention Center (NOW at 26th and O Street). The HPC then turns those donations over to families within our community that are living at or near the poverty line. People that qualify for this assistance can shop the HPC on a weekly basis for second hand items like clothing, household goods and furniture.
Often there are items donated that canít be reused but can be recycled. This is where Mission Recycle comes in! Items like used clothing and shoes (along with plastic and cardboard) are collected, baled and shipped to vendors that will pay the Mission for these raw materials. The money that the recyclables return to the Mission is used to underwrite the costs of running the outreach at the Homeless Prevention Center.
Truly, there is very little that the Mission canít use to further support the less fortunate of our community! Please remember this the next time you have items you are ready to throw away. Those items just might be the answer to one of your neighborís problems.
