Galway Cafe
Elmhurst, IL

Elmhurst, Illinois’ Galway Cafe serves great food and offers dancing every night until 4 A.M. This lively, entertaining USAgain partner is also active in eco-friendly activities, displaying a USAgain collection bin outside their restaurant in an effort to collect unwanted clothing and divert them from landfills.

The collection bin is essential in gaining the attention of new customers, said manager Mary Passaris. An eco-friendly and environmentally-conscious image is important to some consumers, and hosting a USAgain collection bin helps Galway Cafe display its true colors.

Passaris hopes the collection bin will motivate customers to recycle more often, she said.

Bernie’s Antioch Marathon
Antioch, IL

Site host Bernie’s Antioch Marathon is a proud partner in USAgain’s clothing collection efforts. Conveniently located on a corner at Main Street in Antioch, Illinois, Bernie’s Antioch Marathon’s collection bins bring new customers to the business, says manager Brandon Marzahl.

There’s nothing easier than dropping off clothes in the USAgain collection bin as you fill-up your gas tank. In this global economic recession, Marzahl hopes customers will drop-off clothing and shoes in realization that people around the world would benefit from the unwanted clothing and shoes occupying space in our closets.

“Times may be bad here, but it’s worth in other places,” said Marzahl. “We should still help out.”
