he Cowboy Pledge spring clothing drive for the Rescue Mission of Salt Lake City, Utah, concluded on April 26, 2014. For this clothing drive 17 Cowboy Properties apartment communities located all along the Wasatch Front provided collection bins in their office or clubhouse. Their generous residents filled some of them to overflowing several times during the two week long drive.
Cowboy Pledge volunteers collected all of the donations and delivered them to Liberty Midtown Apartments, at 225 South 300 East Salt Lake City, Utah 84111 for a fun sorting party. Residents from Liberty CityWalk Apartments, Liberty Metro Apartments and Liberty Midtown Apartments volunteered to go through all of the items and prepare them for delivery to the Rescue Mission. They had a great time separating the items into men’s, women’s and children’s categories and making sure that all of the items were useable.
The clubroom of Liberty Midtown Apartments was soon covered with stacks of men’s clothing including pants, shirts, coats, hats, shoes, suits and ties. Other men’s clothing included blue jeans, casual and dress shorts, socks, belts, t-shirts, sweaters and pajamas.
The lobby area was reserved for women’s and children’s clothing and the tables were piled with blouses, pants, t-shirts, sweaters, coats, shoes and other items. The women’s and children’s clothing filled several large bags and numbered over 200 items.
The volunteers did not get an exact count of all of items that were donated but there were more than 600 items that were counted and packed for delivery to the Rescue Mission.
The party concluded with light refreshments and a drawing for gift cards and other thank you gifts from Cowboy Properties. Everyone took home at least one prize and enjoyed the cookies and soft drinks.
The Rescue Mission of Salt Lake was very grateful for the clothing and offered their thanks to everyone who donated or participated in any way.
Cowboy Properties and Cowboy Pledge is grateful for the generous support of our great apartment residents and staff and especially to the volunteers who helped sort and pack the clothing.
