Mission Soft Donating Linens to Homeless

Knoxville (WVLT) -- As many of you are cleaning out your closets and making charitable donations, so are some area hotels.

In two years, "Mission Soft" has washed 26,000 pieces of linen in 26 cities.

Hotels cannot use slightly worn sheets, towels, blankets, washcloths and pillowcases.

So four hotels in our area will give the linens to over 1,200 homeless in our community.

"When they get a little worn, they have to do something with their linen. So what better thing to do then to donate it to a cause that other folks can use it instead of throwing it away," said Roger Bowles with A & W Supply.

Donations will be washed by the Comfort Inn and Suites West with chemicals from A & W Supply.

To make donations, call Homeward Bound at (865) 546-3500.
