‘Clothesline’ donors eligible for contest

“Bag it. Donate it. Win it.”
While the Canadian Diabetes Association’s “Clothesline” program regularly gets quite a few donations locally, a new contest is giving donors an even better reason to give during November.

Those who donate their gently-used clothing, small household items, and electronics to “Clothesline” prior to Nov. 30 automatically will be entered for a chance to win a trip for four to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla.
There are two ways to donate and enter the contest:
•By phone—call 1-800-505-5525 to schedule a free pick-up (mention “Donate”); and
•Online—schedule your free pick-up at diabetes.ca/clothesline
All of the net proceeds raised by “Clothesline” directly supports the Canadian Diabetes Association.
A reminder to local residents that there now are drop boxes for gently-used clothing donations located at Canadian Tire and in front of the Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre.
