Clothing Shed

Trinity Lutheran Church is now sponsoring a clothing drop off shed as a fundraiser and service to the community. On March 11, 2014 St. Pauly Textile installed one of their clothing collection sheds (pictured below) at Trinity Lutheran for the community to use as a drop off for clothing. The clothing will be distributed all over the United States and world to those who can use it. Trinity Lutheran Chruch will in turn receive 4 cents for every pound of clothing that is donated.

This program keeps clothing out of the landfill, helps out those in need, and helps Trinity reach out to the community with additional funding.

St. Pauly is a family-owned company based in Upstate NY and is an A-plus rated member of the Better Business Bureau. St. Pauly collects useable clothing, shoes, sneakers, belts, purses, linens, blankets and drapes. In 2013, more than 60 million clothing garments were distributed to an estimated 7.5 million people all over the world through the St. Pauly program.

St. Pauly currently has over 800 clothing drop off sheds all over NY and parts of OH, PA, CT, MA, and VT. For the complete list of sheds and more information about St. Pauly, visit
