Register O'Donnell Delivers Donated Clothing to InnerCity Weightlifting

Due to the generosity of countless Norfolk County residents, Register of Deeds William P. O'Donnell recently delivered a clothing donation, through its Suits for Success program, to InnerCity Weightlifting.
 
Register O'Donnell stated, "On behalf of the many kind and generous Norfolk County citizens, Registry staff and real estate professionals who contributed clothing, it was my pleasure to deliver these critically needed items to InnerCity Weightlifting." The clothing donations included men's clothing, shoes and ties.
 
InnerCity Weightlifting, founded in 2010, is a program designed to keep young people off the streets by using its weightlifting and gym facilities to create a community and network of support that encompasses education, job training and employment in the field of personal training.
 
On October 7, 2021 Reginald Talbert, Khyzhaun Peete and Nolisha Greer from InnerCity Weightlifting accepted a donation of men's clothing and accessories to help individuals pursue their career opportunities from the Norfolk Registry of Deeds.  Nolisha Greer, InnerCity Weightlifting Student Engagement Manager noted, "Today in society, we only get to see kindness on a rare occasion. Today I met two people who made a bunch of young men smile. Young men they have never met."  
 
The goal of the Suits for Success program is to help men and women reach economic independence and personal self-fulfillment. This year marks the tenth anniversary of the program at the Registry of Deeds. During that period Register O'Donnell has delivered more than 7,500 pieces of clothing. Besides InnerCity Weightlifting, other non-profits who have benefited from this program include Interfaith Social Services of Quincy, Father Bill's & Mainspring of Quincy and Brockton and the Boston Veterans Administration Healthcare System Service program.
 
Those interested in making a clothing donation can schedule a drop off of new or gently used business appropriate clothing, professionally cleaned, Monday through Friday between 9:00AM-4:00PM at the Registry of Deeds building located at 649 High Street, Dedham, MA.
 
Register O'Donnell concluded by stating, "I again want to thank everyone for their continuing generosity in supporting the Suits for Success program. Having something in your closet that you no longer wear can make a world of difference in the life of someone else. It may just be the item that helps them get ahead in life."
 
To learn more about these and other Registry of Deeds events and initiatives like us at facebook.com/NorfolkDeeds or follow us on twitter.com/NorfolkDeeds and instagram.com/NorfolkDeeds.
 
The Norfolk County Registry of Deeds is located at 649 High Street in Dedham.  The Registry is a resource for homeowners, title examiners, mortgage lenders, municipalities and others with a need for secure, accurate, accessible land record information.  All land record research information can be found on the Registry's website www.norfolkdeeds.org.  Residents in need of assistance can contact the Registry of Deeds Customer Service Center via telephone at (781) 461-6101, or email us at registerodonnell@norfolkdeeds.org.

“I see a lot of pink bags at the curb awaiting (pickup) that will never come”

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"Jillian Wilson, Natick’s sustainability coordinator, is saddened by the number of pink recycling bags she still sees on the curbs of several Natick neighborhoods. 
Those pink recycling bags are part of Simple Recycling’s curbside clothing recycling program. 
Based out of Ohio, the for-profit recycler takes donated high quality clothing and other household goods and resells them to thrift shops or international markets. The town has been using the service for two years, and close to 20,000 to 30,000 pieces of material are collected each month, according to Wilson-Martin. 
On March 23, the company had to suspend operations in the state, following Gov. Charlie Baker’s order for all non-essential businesses to seize in-person operations to minimize the spread of the coronavirus."

Franklin Residents: Simple Recycling Temporarily Suspended

Simple Recycling Temporarily Suspended

Curbside Simple Recycling (pink bags) is suspended until further notice.



I posted last week that I had missed an update on the change with this service. As I walked this week, others also had still missed my update too. I did stop to give a couple of my neighbors the news that the pink bags would not be picked up.

Franklin Residents: January Brings a Record Month of Clothing Recycling

January Brings a Record Month of Clothing Recycling


In January 2020 simplerecycling.com picked up 20,437 pounds of clothing for reuse/recycling!

What could be easier than using the pink bags and take it to the curb.

This saves material form ending up in the trash and recycling carts and the residual money ($20/ton) received goes into the curbside solid waste program to reduce fees.

Please spread the word and go to simplerecycling.com for more bags and information.
