Making Buckhead. . . so very livable.
Simon Properties and Livable Buckhead to Host Clothing and Shoe Drive During Sales Tax Holiday, July 31 and Aug. 1 - Back-to-school shopping will kick into high gear during Georgia’s sales tax holidays on Friday, July 31 and Saturday, Aug. 1. Shoppers who need to make room in their closets for all those new purchases can bring their old clothing to Lenox Square, where Simon Properties and Livable Buckhead are hosting a clothing and shoe drive. Collection tents will be located on the Peachtree Rd. side of Lenox Square from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. on both days.
A wide range of clothing items will be accepted, including clothes, belts, purses, scarves, backpacks, book bags, textiles, T-shirts, socks, shoes, dress shoes, hats, caps, gloves, coats, jackets, suits, uniforms, etc. Clothing is repurposed in places such as Africa and Mexico where access to quality clothing is greatly needed. Unusable items are repurposed into paper or low-grade utility cloths.
It’s Time to Hit the Trail!
The first phase of PATH400 opened in January, and it’s already become a favorite spot for Buckhead walkers, joggers, bikers and pet owners to get out for some fresh air and exercise. Work on Phase II is underway and expected to be complete in early 2016. What else is in store for PATH400? Who is leading this project? Click here to learn more.
