A local non profit organization is upset to hear MCC discards about 50-thousand pounds of clothing each year that is not distributed or sold.


Faith Mission in Winkler bales and ships donations of clothing to poor former communist countries, especially the Ukraine last year.

The organization does receive some clothing from MCC but it does not fill the need.

Spokesperson Jake Elias wonders if they could take some of that surplus for their program rather than have it thrown away.

He says they have been getting calls wondering if their organization is still accepting donations of clothing which he says they most definitely are.
