Auburn’s Age-Friendly Community Committee is organizing a clothing donation drive for the unhoused community.

New, unused clothing and cash donations can be dropped off at the Hasty Community Center at Auburn Recreation in Pettengill Park, 48 Pettengill Park Road, during business hours, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Alternatively, residents can email Ward 5 City Councilor Leroy Walker at [email protected] to schedule drop-offs directly.

Warm outerwear, rain gear and other protective items of clothing are needed, according to a news release from Liz Allen, Auburn’s director of communications and community engagement.

The committee plans to hold two events for those in need to collect new clothes. On Saturdays, March 25, from 1-3 p.m., and April 8 from 2-4 p.m., unhoused individuals and families can visit the Auburn Senior Community Center in Pettengill Park to pick up clothes and dispose of any unwanted clothing. Public transportation to the Senior Center is available via citylink bus.

For more information, contact Allen at 207-333-6601, ext. 2070 or [email protected].
