More than 4,300 donated clothing items were collected at the Salvation Army’s new soft serve donation bins during the 2016 season, the organization announced Tuesday.
The bin has been open since late August.
The organization will be adding additional soft serve bins throughout the state, and donations will continue to be accepted until February 5, 2017, according to the statement.
The new bins were designed to provide a new outlet for homeless people to donate their clothing, which has been a problem during the Great Recession.
The Salvation Army has previously announced that it will begin collecting donated clothing for the homeless during the next year.
The organization is working with the National Salvation Army to expand the soft serve bin program and add new bins to the city.
