— The Sierra Waste Corp. is giving away a whopping $1.5 million worth of apparel and other recyclables.
The company is offering the clothes to the Sierra Club and other groups for free in exchange for a donation of 10% of their donations.
The Sierra Club is giving the company free clothes at its annual meeting, where the company will present a gift for the Sierra Foundation.
The Sierra Club will also donate 10% to the San Francisco chapter of the Sierra Alliance.
Sierra Waste has been donating its clothing for more than a decade, but it hasn’t had a problem keeping the proceeds.
The company says that the free clothes will be used to buy other items to help people in the community.
It’s also donating a few hundred pairs of shoes for charity.
Skipper Jim Tompkins, a Sierra Club member, said he thinks the Sierra Waste offer will help the charity reach out to younger people and young families.
“I think it’s going to really help the Sierra Kids and the Sierra Girl kids, because I think a lot of the clothing is just a little too small for them,” he said.
“We’re really looking for kids to help us in our efforts to get kids into college and get them out of the streets.”
The Sierra Foundation, which has been working to help build a community of people who want to recycle their waste, said it’s donating 10% in the first year of the donation to the foundation to help it meet its goal of getting 10% recycled into new products.
“Sierra has been doing this for a long time,” said Sandy Oster, a spokeswoman for the foundation.
“It’s been really rewarding and a great way to keep the donations coming.”
