Time for some spring cleaning? Got a few hours before that Memorial Day bbq? or between the NHL playoff games? How about doing some good while doing that spring cleaning?

Clear out your closets, attic, garage and shed and bring your gently used clothing, shoes and household items to the Front Street Animal Shelter now through June 1. The Shelter, located at 2127 Front Street, is holding a unique fundraiser, courtesy of ReUseIt.org.

Donations will be accepted also at the Sacramento ReUseIt Donation Station, 5005 Stockton Blvd. Clothing, shoes, blankets, linens, tools, kitchen items from your home, attic, garage and shed and more are welcome. No mattresses, hazardous materials, items in need of repair or cleaning are not accepted.

"This unique fundraiser does not cost any money and it promotes responsible recycling, helps our landfills and the environment. It is a great way to give back to the local community while raising money for Front Street Animal Shelter!" the shelter staff posted on Facebook

Called a ReUseIt Drive, the nonprofit organization adopts an organization every month. As the donations are collected, they are weighed by ReUseIt staff, who then pay the shelter per pound for the amount gathered.

Look around your home, shed, garage: Those running shoes still have a few miles in them – not a marathon, but perhaps for someone else to jog a few miles? How ’bout that comforter – doesn’t fit your remodel, but perhaps it might look great on someone else’s day bed? And those dishes: not enough for your growing family anymore, but perhaps a young family might find it just right for the dinner table.

For more information, see www.reuseit.org or the shelter’s home page on the types of items that are accepted.
