You may be familiar with Northwest Center’s donation drop-off via the Big Blue Truck at Eat Local. They’re there every weekend 9am-5pm to take your clothing and household goods donations, and those donations help fund the non-profit, which serves children and adults with developmental disabilities. It’s also a local non-profit with a Queen Anne school, Northwest Center Kids at Queen Anne.
Well, you no longer have to wait for the weekend to donate gently used clothing to Northwest Center, as the organization has partnered with local Blue Sky Cleaners for clothing collection bins.
Blue Sky Cleaners is Seattle’s only toxin-free cleaning service, with a dedication to the environment via its emissions-free delivery vehicles and carbon neutral cleaning process – and it has a commitment to the community via the Northwest Center partnership. You can now drop off your clothing donations at barrels in each Blue Sky Cleaners location, including the one at 1420 Queen Ave. N.
So, next time you drop off your dry cleaning or miss the Big Blue Truck, you can take in your clothing donations to Blue Sky Cleaners and support Northwest Center and their mission of “promoting the rights and independence of infants, children, teens and adults with developmental disabilities.”

Queen Anne Manor, an assisted living community on the hill, is holding a clothing drive this month to collect gently used garmets for disabled children and adults through the Northwest Center. Called “Live Here, Give Here,” according to Queen Anne Manor Marketing Director Bethany Leigh Juchem, the program is “geared to give back to the community that has given so much to us for nearly a century.” The goal, she said, it to raise awareness and funds for local charities – live here, give here.
Anyone interested in making a donation, can drop of gently used clothing for kids and adults at Queen Anne Manor, located at 100 Crockett St. – the historic brick building behind the Upper Queen Anne Safeway – from now until December 1, after which the organization will begin its annual food drive for The Millionaire Club.
