Donate gently used items at UPMC St. Margaret’s ReuseFest

UPMC St. Margaret will host ReuseFest on Saturday, aiming to collect items like bikes, bedding and books.

The hospital is partnering with environmental advocacy group Pennsylvania Resources Council for the drop-off event. It will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 8 in the UPMC St. Margaret parking lot off Delafield Road.

Items collected can be gently used and include clothes, home furnishings, lawn equipment, housewares, kitchen items, medical supplies, books and bath supplies.

They will be distributed to local non-profits like Brother’s Brother Foundation , Dress for Sucess and Grow Pittsburgh .

“The event will divert materials from local landfills, protecting the environment from harmful waste and pollution by finding ways to repurpose materials and benefiting those in need,” said Stephanie Stanley, media relations director for St. Margaret.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
