Thread Ahead consists of collecting gently used clothing from students and community members, and pairing with local nonprofits who are need of various clothing items. We are currently working with Anna Marie’s Alliance in St. Cloud to get them items they need. At the end of the year we will host an event in which students and community members can shop the clothing items we have collected, and the money will provide additional support for the nonprofits, while allowing students and community members a sustainable way to shop for clothing. This project is heavily driven by the concepts of giving back to others through donation, reducing our carbon footprint through recycling, and supporting cost-effective and mindful consumerism.
