Dunwoody Girl Scout Troop 12576 donates clothing bin to assist Malachi’s Storehouse & families in need.

Is it time to clean out the closets?

Looking for a place to donate your gently used clothes? How about the new clothing donation bin at Malachi’s Storehouse? You can donate clothes 24/7, and all the clothes go to families in need. The bin is located in the front parking lot of St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church at 4755 North Peachtree Road, across the street from the entrance to Brook Run Park.

The new clothing bin was donated from Junior Girl Scout Troop 12576 which includes girls from Chesnut Elementary and Kittredge Magnet School. After touring Malachi’s Storehouse a year earlier, the girls discovered that Malachi’s did not have a way to collect donated clothing. For their Bronze Award Project, Troop 12576 raised funds to purchase a clothing collection bin to put outside Malachi’s Storehouse.

To raise the funds to purchase the bin, Troop 12576 had bake sales at The Mad Italian, Brook Run Park’s Food Truck Thursdays, Chesnut Elementary’s Bingo Night, and Kingswood United Methodist Church. Malachi’s Storehouse paid for the signage on the bin. The troop is very grateful for the community support.

There will be a dedication ceremony on September 10th at 12:00 to celebrate the addition to Malachi’s Storehouse and the girls’ hard work on the project.
