Simply Clean collecting clothes for homeless one more week

There’s one more week to donate clothes to a Bellevue cleaning company’s winter clothing collection campaign.

Simply Clean, based in Eastgate, has taken collections since late December to benefit King County’s homeless population while raising awareness of the ongoing homeless problem.

“Bellevue is filled with charitable people who pride themselves on improving their community,” Simply Clean representative Jim Allen said. “Unfortunately, unless an issue is right in front of your eyes, you don’t give it much attention.”

The company is asking for new or only lightly used winter-specific clothing such as jackets, sweatshirts, raincoats, boots, gloves and beanies delivered prewashed in garbage bags. Clothes donated to Simply Clean will be sorted before being given to area charities and nonprofit organizations.
