We consume on average one towel per individual staying at the Mary Isaak Center (that is 500 towels each year.)  Not bad when you consider that the towels are used for 100+ showers per day and are washed with bleach to disinfect.  When the towels reach the end of their life, they are cut up for rags and spend some more quality time at the shelter cleaning various nooks and crannies around the facility.

We have large Tupperware containers that hold the surplus towels until they are needed and they have been emptied.  Used towels are preferred over new towels (new towels tend to disappear).  So why don’t you treat yourself to some new towels and bring the old ones to the Mary Isaak Center? That would be a win-win!
