St. Apuly clothing shed

+ An important message from St. Pauly Textile Inc. regarding our clothing donation shed: The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a massive toll on our business over the past few months. Our primary struggle has revolved, in large part, around the shutting down of international borders and the resulting inability to redistribute the majority of clothing that we collect. We’ve been storing millions of pounds of clothing in trailers for future distribution, while simultaneously relying on the government paycheck protection program, savings, loans, and depleted revenue to keep our operations up and running. Unfortunately, we’ve reached a point where this is no longer viable, and we have no other choice but to temporarily close down our sheds in order to keep our business stable. We plan on reopening your shed as soon as we possibly can. The timing depends on what happens across the world in the coming months.Accordingly, we are unable to accept any more clothing donations until further notice. Please do not leave any bags outside the shed or in the can & bottle shed. We have no where to store donations and will be forced to dispose of any items left. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
