High school seniors host clothing drive
SAUGERTIES >> Saugerties High School’s senior class will have a used clothing drive fundraiser Saturday, Oct. 22, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the bus circle on the school campus off Washington Avenue Extension.
Local residents are encouraged to drop off new or gently used clothing of all types and sizes, as well as sneakers and shoes, hats, jewelry, purses, belts, backpacks, bedding and other linens (no pillows), small stuffed toys, DVDs, and video games. Items should be in well-tied in 13- or 33-gallon plastic trash bags. Clothing, footwear/accessories, and toys should be grouped in separate bags.
The drive is being held in partnership with Deposit Your Closet/Clothing DriveFundraiser.com, which will collect the bags, weigh them, and give the senior class a monetary donation based on the total weight. All proceeds will go to the senior class to help fund class trips and other activities.
