Find bargains and recycle clothes at SDA event

ENCINITAS — The San Dieguito High School Academy Community rummage sale, sponsored by the San Dieguito Academy Foundation, will spread out its treasures from 7 a.m. to noon May 31 in front of the SDA Performing Arts Center Amphitheater at 800 Santa Fe Drive.

A new feature this year will be a partnership with Ripple Textile Recycling, a San Diego-based business that collects unwanted clothes and other household textiles (regardless of condition) for reuse or recycling. By diverting textiles from landfills, Ripple provides affordable clothing and other household items to those in need, and also provides a needed commodity to be converted into new products The SDA Foundation will also benefit by getting a percentage of every pound collected.

SDA student clubs, athletic teams, and councils will staff  “spaces” in a swap-meet environment, offering clothing, tools, antiques, collectables, sporting goods and more.

“Proceeds will be used to support our students, their clubs, teams and extracurricular programs,” said Foundation President Pat Mock.

Community members are encouraged to donate items made from any type of fabric or fiber. Donations should be sealed in large, black garbage bags and will be accepted from 6 to 9 p.m. May 30 and from 7 a.m. to noon May 31, in front of the Amphitheater.
