On Friday, Menifee (Calif.) Self Storage and Second Chance Textile hosted a charity drive to benefit local schools and charities. Residents were encouraged to contribute used clothes, shoes, small household appliances and books. Donations of school supplies such as notebooks and pencils were also accepted for distribution through Project School Bell.
Second Chance resells and recycles people's unwanted items, most of which are sold for distribution to thrift stores and Third-World countries. A portion of the proceeds goes to schools and charities such as Rancho Damacitas Children's Home in Temecula, Calif., and Project School Bell, which helps children who are unable to purchase their own school supplies.
