A group of West Virginia University students will raise “A-WEAR-ness” of textiles recycling and support a charitable organization at the same time.
Professor Tracy Vash’s Fashion Design and Merchandising 230 class will be collecting worn usable and unusable garments and textile products Oct. 29 through Dec. 3 for the A-WEAR-ness Campaign for the Homeless. The items will be donated to The Mission, a West Virginia support agency whose staff will sort the goods. Wearable donations will go to those in need while other items will be baled and sold to a recycling firm. All proceeds support programs and activities for homeless individuals and families at the shelter.
