As some of you may recall, we organized a winter clothing drive a few weeks ago. I thought I should give you all an update on that.
I think the drive went pretty well. We collected nearly 15 boxes of warm clothes from the neighbors and school parents. At the end, the entire collection was donated to the local charities. They include
- Thrive DC, www.thrivedc.org – all winter items (coats, scarves, gloves, blankets, shoes, etc.)
- Pregnancy Aid, http://pregnancyaidcenter.org – items for infants and children
- The Arc Thrift Store, www.thearcofpgc.org/thrift_store.html – everything that didn’t fit into the previous two categories
On behalf of the organizers and volunteers, I thank everyone for their kind donations to this drive. I’m sure the recipients of your donations will much appreciate your efforts. Thank you.
