RELEASE: RSI Kitchen & Bath donates hundreds of clothes to help vulnerable St. Louis children and families

Last week, RSI Kitchen & Bath, a local full-service remodeling center, concluded its Spring Cleaning Clothing Drive after receiving almost 20 large bags full of clothes from employees and the community. These donations amounted to approximately 500 clothing items, which will benefit FamilyForward, a non-profit organization supporting families in need in the St. Louis area.

The donations will be recycled for sale and 100% of the collection proceeds are donated directly to FamilyForward so they can continue to provide comprehensive therapeutic and educational services for children in our community. FamilyForward has assisted children and families in the St. Louis area for 170 years, and almost 10,000 family members were served by the organization in 2016 alone.

“The St. Louis community is truly a loving and philanthropic community. We want to extend a big thank you to everyone who participated in this clothing drive. Our donation was not possible without your individual contributions,” says Megan Bittle, RSI Kitchen & Bath’s current President and CEO.

The Spring Cleaning Clothing Drive lasted from Tuesday March 20, to Saturday April 14. RSI Kitchen & Bath was able to offer St. Louisans a chance to clean and organize their own closets, while simultaneously making a direct impact in the community.

In efforts to raise awareness of the Spring Cleaning Clothing Drive, RSI Kitchen & Bath held a raffle to encourage community members to donate bags of clothing. For each bag of clothes donated, an individual was granted one raffle entry to win a Grand Prize Gift Basket. Th basket included an RSI Kitchen and Bath gift card, kitchen sets, bottles of wine, and more. The big winner was Kathy, a donor from the Rock Hill location.
