To recycle used clothing and shoes to benefit the Women’s Resource Center (WRC), place your bagged items in the Big Brothers Big Sisters donation bin located behind our office at 624 Main St., Warren, RI.  The textiles will be recycled, instead of going to the landfill, and the WRC will receive a portion of the proceeds!
