Carthage Crisis Center uses recycled clothes to clothe the poor


An area organization has a unique way to make money, clothe the poor, and keep items out of the landfill all at the same time.
Carthage Crisis Center assistant director Noah Fry says some people may know the center accepts a variety of objects including paper products, books and cardboard, but they also accept clothes.
He says clothes that may not be in good enough condition to resell in our area, can be bailed up and sent overseas to third world countries. Fry says that keeps all of those recyclable items out of area landfills, and it benefits the center through the sale of those products.
“Yes, it’s one of the ways we generate income along with our thrift store that we have, Treasures on Main so,” says Noah Fry.
The center is located at 100 South Main and accepts recyclable products from anyone, not just from residents in Carthage.
