CREATE Opportunities: DONATE Clothing, Fabric and Household Items.
HOW YOUR DONATIONS HELP? Your donations help support FRA programs and create training and employment opportunities for people with disabilities in our community. Fairbanks Resource Agency (FRA) is a non-profit partner and supplier of donated items for Value Village thrift store. FRA Closet Collections is a recycling service that collects these items throughout the Fairbanks North Star Borough, including Fort Wainwright, Eielson AFB and North Pole area. When you use Closet Collections services, FRA earn funds from your donations that it delivers to the thrift store.
So every time you donate directly to Closet Collections, you create opportunities for individuals and for FRA as a whole. Plus, you are helping the environment. Closet Collections picked up 523 tons of clothing and fabric items that were diverted away from the Fairbanks landfill in 2012!
