We were in Deira City Center mall a few days and found this. Recycle and reuse for a cause. We asked the person sitting next to the box and he said the old bags will be taken to Red Crescent and distributed to children who need them. (Sorry I did not ask until when they’ll be there!)
If you have old bags gathering dust at home, please try to drop by Deira City Center, Level 1, just before Tim Hortons and donate your old school bags (that still function). I am sure there are lots of children who will be happy to use it.
