Your donations in Utah help improve our local communities in more ways than one. Not only do they empower us in our mission to help kids succeed, but they also keep our communities cleaner.
At BBBS, we receive a variety of different donations in Utah like clothing drivers, monthly monetary contributions, stocks and bonds, and even AmazonSmile. However, clothing drives are one of our most environmentally friendly options. That’s because we accept more than just clothing. We also love to receive accessories, toys, media, housewares, and books. Each of these items saves precious room in Utah landfills, and it means that these items get to go to someone else who needs them.
We take your donated items and sell the goods to Savers to raise funds. We also partner with youth-serving nonprofit groups to raise additional funds for things like Eagle Scout or Silver Award projects, corporate community projects, youth sports team fundraisers, and PTA fundraisers.
Your donations in Utah are leaving a real impact. Last year alone, clothing drives and other donations totaled up to:
-3,375,403 pounds of cloth waste diverted from Utah landfills
-21 partners supported through clothing drives
-273 matches funded by donation center social enterprise
Your contributions are part of a legacy of people willing to make sacrifices to help ignite potential in youth. For more than 40 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has successfully matched kids with positive mentors, giving each kid a fighting chance at a better future. Thank you for supporting such a crucial mission.
