Want to do good while doing some spring cleaning? Is your house and shed overflowing with gently used items that are just too good to toss? Those running shoes still have a few miles in them – not a marathon, but perhaps for someone else to jog a few miles? How ’bout that comforter – doesn’t fit your remodel, but perhaps it might look great on someone else’s day bed? And those dishes: not enough for your growing family anymore, but perhaps a young family might find it just right for the dinner table.
Clear out your closets, attic, garage and shed and bring your gently used clothing, shoes and household items to the Front Street Animal Shelter on Saturday, June 1. The Shelter, located at 2127 Front Street, is holding a unique fundraiser, courtesy of ReUseIt.org.
The shelter will begin receiving donations at 9 a.m., which are then weighed by ReUseIt staff, who then pay the shelter per pound for the amount gathered. Called a ReUseIt Drive, this state-registered event is slated to run until 3 p.m.
Clothing, shoes, blankets, linens, tools, kitchen items from your home, attic, garage and shed and more are welcome. No mattresses, hazardous materials, items in need of repair or cleaning are not accepted.
For more information, see www.reuseit.org or the shelter’s home page on the types of items that are accepted.

Forget famous quotes and cute sayings. I am one cool dude in need of a nice home. I don’t care if you are single guy with poor bathroom hygiene, as long as I can sleep on your pillow occassionally. Dudes rule.
Scrappy black kitty in need of a home interested in laughter and antics. Pick me, pick me! Hurry, I won’t last at the shelter. Black cuteness!
I am Andrew. There is nothing more beautiful than me. So adopt me. I will only grow up to be more beautiful. What else could you want? End of story.
If you adopt me, I promise not to be any trouble. I will never jump on your ankles nor tear up the toilet paper nor meow for my breakfast. I will be the perfect kitty. Promise! Just look at my baby blue eyes — would I lie?
Ignore all other cats. They are inferior. I am all that you need. Look me up, take me home. I don’t eat much and will take up very little space in your bed, promise.
