When you donate items directly to Closet Collections, you help support FRA programs and create training and employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
FRA is a nonprofit partner and supplier of donated items to the Value Village thrift store. Closet Collections is a recycling service that collects donated items from its FRA Drop-off bins and picks up items from the Fairbanks North Star Borough, Fort Wainwright, Eielson AFB and North Pole areas, and delivers these items to Value Village. Through this partnership and recycling service, FRA generates revenue from the clothing/ fabric items it brings to the thrift store.
So when you use Closet Collections pick-up and drop-off bin services, FRA earns more funds from your reusable clothing and fabric donations. Plus, you are helping the environment. Each year, Closet Collections picks up an average of 523 tons of clothing/ fabric items that are diverted away from the Fairbanks landfill. Though Closet Collections accepts various donated items, please see the list of Items Not Accepted by Closet Collections.
