Walden Galleria and the Western New York Coalition for Donated Goods (WNYCDG) teamed up to celebrate Earth Day with a donation station at Walden Galleria. On Saturday, April 22nd from 10am-5pm, donors brought in any donated clothing items regardless of condition and received a free reusable water tumbler, Walden Galleria Value Guide and a Lord & Taylor savings pass. The WNYCDG volunteers provided educational information about the coalition and the missions of its members, how and where to donate your clothing, and how donating and recycling benefits the planet. Walden Galleria has WNYCDG donation bins located at Customer Service to accept year-round donations. For more information, please visit www.waldengalleria.com
