San Jose to Turn Rags to Riches
San Jose Elementary School is starting a new recycling fundraiser that will help clothe people in impoverished nations.
San Jose Elementary is collecting old clothes and shoes as part of a national campaign to help impoverished countries.
The old clothes and shoes will be collected in a recycling bin in the parking lot and later be turned into rags and textiles or resold in other nations through City Recycling Group, according to a recent San Jose Elementary newsletter.
San Jose Elementary receives 11 cents for every pound it collects.
San Jose has been named the most energy-efficient elementary school in Pinellas County for the past two years.
