r By Jody Osborne, Tabitha’s Way

Years ago when our children were young, we had an incident with the child of a friend. We were a little concerned about voicing the problem with our friend about his child, but his answer has always stuck with me. He told us he would be mad at us if we didn’t pass on the concerns we had and that “It takes a village” to raise kids.

Tabitha’s Way needs the help of the “village” to help us teach people the proper use of our clothing collection bins. These bins can be spotted throughout Utah County at various businesses, schools and government locations. For those that are unfamiliar with these bins, let me briefly explain their importance.

Our Print Advertisers

The clothing and other goods that are collected by these bins are used to help those in need in various ways. A small portion of the clothes are given to those in need of items of clothing, but the bulk of the donations are sold to a broker and Tabitha’s Way receives funds based on the weight of the clothing. A full bin of clothes equates to feeding six people for a month.

We have had problems lately with people dumping items by the bins that we cannot take. When TVs, mattresses, furniture or any other large items are dumped, Tabitha’s has to pay to have them gathered and taken to the dump. An even bigger problem is that the locations of the bins need to be kept clean so that the owners will continue to allow us to keep them on their property.

We have signs on the bins asking for “no dumping”, but we continue to have this problem. We are asking that our village help us by letting others know dumping is not only a problem for Tabitha’s, but is illegal. Please take a picture of those you see dumping and the license plate so we can let these individuals know that dumping is not allowed.

Tabitha’s Way has benefited greatly from our great community and we ask that you will continue to help Tabitha’s by helping us police these donation bins.

Thank you and God Bless.
