Reno Stake Hosts 'Recycled Clothing Fair'

RENO, NEVADA -- Back-to-school shopping can be daunting, especially for Carmen Perez who was shopping for 19 grandchildren. However her job was made easier and less expensive by a trip to the Recycled Clothing Fair hosted by the Reno Nevada Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Stake started the program six years ago for church members but has expanded it to include anyone in the community. The event had more than 550 visitors in the first 90 minutes and organizers expected 200 more before the three-hour fair would end.

An estimated 500 to 750 church members contributed to the fair. Even though the church asks the same people to donate clothing for the event every year, there never seems to be a shortage of contributions, said Nancy Lund, a member of the congregation. "Even people who are taking clothes have given things that don't fit anymore, so it truly is recycling," said Rick Lund,her husband. More than 175 volunteers helped with the fair.
