The results of the 9th annual Locations Foundation clothing drive are in, and a whopping 8,151 pounds of clothing, shoes, slippers and linens were collected. The clothing and other items will be divided equally among the Foundation's three partner organizations: United Cerebral Palsy Association of Hawaii, Institute for Human Services (IHS) and Partners in Development - Ka Paalana Homeless Family Education Program.
In addition, the Locations Foundation will donate $8,151 to be divided equally among these three organizations.
"We're humbled by the generosity of our agents, their clients and the public," said Michael Marks, vice president of client engagement for Locations and chair of the clothing drive. "I'm also pleased to announce that this year's clothing drive garnered nearly 400 more pounds of clothing than last year's drive."
