SCRANTON -- Even though it hasn't felt like spring lately, the warmer temperatures we're supposed to get this weekend might have many of us thinking about doing some spring cleaning.

This Power to Save is all about cleaning the closet and why now is a good time to put your unwanted items to good use.

Workers at the Salvation Army in Scranton want you to send unwanted clothing and other household items their way.

This Salvation Army location along River Street tells us this place and other thrift shops are down in clothing donations compared to years past.

Employees say they'll take all seasons of gently-used, unstained clothing.

"It goes through a process.  We look for good and bad; stuff that's damaged, stuff that's not damaged.  We try to put out some better styles; something that isn't 300 years old, something that's for every age group," said Alan Miller.
