505-Junk hosting clothing drive fundraiser

South Delta residents can help fundraise for mental health and suicide prevention by donating unwanted clothing
505-Junk will have their donation truck on site to gather bagged clothing, which has the ability to weigh the total amount of material. $0.10 per pound will be donated to the company's Movember fundraising campaign.

505-Junk is hosting a clothing drive fundraiser on Saturday (Nov. 27) at the South Delta Recreation Centre in Tsawwassen.

The purpose of the event is to raise funds for Movember, while providing Delta residents an opportunity to donate unwanted clothing in an environmentally-friendly manner.

Here’s how it works:

505-Junk will have multiple trucks on site at the Rec Centre between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Residents are invited to drop off an unlimited amount of bagged clothing, which will be collected by the 505-Junk team on site.

Residents are also welcome to donate a small amount to the team’s Movember fundraising campaign, however it is not required.

505-Junk will donate $0.10/lb of clothing to the team’s Movember campaign. All clothing will be weighed on site with the company’s onboard weighing systems. Clothing will be dropped off at the Salvation Army.

“Raising awareness of mental health and suicide prevention is so important, especially when considering the effects of COVID-19,” says Barry Hartman, Co-Founder & CEO at 505-Junk. “I’m so proud of our team for putting this event together, and for finding a way to raise awareness for an important issue. I really encourage everyone to stop by and drop off a few bags of clothing. Your efforts will help fundraise for a good cause, free up some space in your closet, and find a new home while keeping your items out of the landfill.”

The City of Delta is a partner in the event.

“I would like to thank Mr. Hartman and the entire team at 505-Junk for their generosity and commitment to raising awareness and funds for mental health and suicide prevention resources,” said Mayor George Harvie. “It's inspiring to see a local business that is so engaged in the community where they live and work. I know that Delta is a generous and caring community, and I look forward to seeing an excellent turnout at the clothing drive in support of this terrific cause.”
