St. Pauly Textile is committed to diverting more clothing items away from landfills and sending them to people in need.  In 2022, approximately 41,326 pounds of clothing were donated to our local shed, enough to clothe an estimated 7,613 people.  This clothing is being used right now by people in more than 44 different countries (including the US). Based on this volume of clothing, contributions of over $1,600 went directly to Catholic Charities and Our Lady of Lourdes Church.  The donation bin is located in the parking lot of Notre Dame Elementary School on the corner of Genesee St. and Barton Ave. in Utica.
