Grainne Seoige is joining TK Maxx and Enable Ireland to celebrate 20 years of their partnership at the launch of TK Maxx ‘Give Up Clothes For Good’ campaign. The partnership has raised €2.2m for Enable Ireland with close to 120,000 bags of unwanted clothing, accessories and homeware items donated over this time providing support services to over 5,000 children and young adults with disabilities across Ireland.
All donated items are sold through the Enable Ireland network of retail outlets around the country with all proceeds funding 14 local projects in the community. Enable Ireland provides free services to children with disabilities and their families from 40 locations in 14 counties, covering all aspects of a child's physical, educational, and social development from early infancy through adolescence.
Grainne Seoige commented: “We all have clothes at home that we hold onto with the promise of wearing them again but, in reality, will we ever really take them out for another day? This year, I’ve been clearing out my wardrobe to support TK Maxx Give Up Clothes For Good campaign. It’s easy to take part – clear out and donate your unwanted clothing, homeware and accessories to the special collection units in all stores. Once you’ve done it, nominate a friend to get involved too!”
To support ‘Give Up Clothes For Good’ and help Enable Ireland to continue their vital work around Ireland, simply donate unwanted clothing, accessories and quality homeware in any TK Maxx store and nominate a friend, colleague or family member to do the same.
Customers can donate in store using any bag they like, from carrier bags to bin bags. TK Maxx can accept clean clothing, shoes and accessories, ornaments, towels and linen, crockery, cutlery and glassware, collectables and antiques, CDs, DVDs and mobile phones.
