Modestans are being asked to donate clothing and shoes in the blue boxes all over town. They look like mailboxes; there is one in Century Center, and I've seen them elsewhere. According to information on the boxes, the donations go to a "for-profit" company and the items are to be "recycled." In what way resold, made into something else? Why aren't they accepting any other items for recycling? What are they being recycled into?
Donations to a for-profit company deprives local charitable organizations of money and the ability to clothe those who have none.
