Our Tampines Hub Has Collection Drive For Clothes & Shoes
Update (5 Feb, 2.40pm): Organisers have informed MS News that the donation drive has ended early on 5 Feb due to overwhelming response. OTH has confirmed the suspension via an Instagram post.
Those who still wish to donate may contact Soles4Souls via text at 8922 9874, email at email@example.com, or Instagram message here.
The organisers are also seeking volunteers to help with packing the items this weekend. Keen parties may reach out to Rachel @leeqii on Telegram.
Chinese New Year (CNY) is just around the corner and many Singaporeans are already busy spring cleaning their homes to start the new year on the right foot.
If you’ve found yourself with lots of stuff to unload while Marie Kondo-ing your place, Our Tampines Hub (OTH) allows you to do good while tidying up your abode.
So if you wish to give your pre-loved items a second lease of life by donating them, here’s your chance.
Pre-loved clothes and shoes accepted
OTH will be having a clothes and shoes collective drive that coincides with the pre-CNY spring cleaning season.
They’ll be accepting new or pre-loved clothes and shoes of all sizes.
You can even donate ‘single’ shoes if you somehow find yourselves with any!
However, do ensure that all donated items are in good condition.
If you have a mountain of clothing or shoes to donate, you can even arrange to have them dropped off at the Soles4Souls warehouse instead by contacting 8922 9874.
Donated items will go to those in need
The collection drive is a collaboration between OTH and Secondsguru in support of the non-profit organisation Soles4Souls Asia.
All donated items will be redistributed by Soles4Souls to countries like Haiti and Honduras.
They will also be given to people in need of short-term relief such as those caught in disasters.
Additionally, some donations will go towards Singaporeans running micro-enterprises.
