Canyon Service Center closes clothes donation box

The Canyon Service Center in Mill City has closed the clothing donation shed that used to occupy a yellow building in the parking lot.

The Service Center made the move May 22 because of repeated vandalism, theft and misuse of the service, said executive director Joanne Olson. A key issue, Olson said, was that unusable items were being left for the CSC to dispose of. 

“We are sorry to be unable to provide this community service any longer,” Olson said in a Facebook post. “We just don’t have enough volunteers to help maintain the program through these repeated challenges.”
