In response to a great need for children’s warm clothing, the Ipswich High School National Honor Society will be organizing an emergency clothing drive. Along with helping local organizations, the clothing will be donated by Cradles to Crayons which distributes clothing to needy children throughout the state at no cost via hundreds of social service providers.
NHS Advisor Scott Ames is an amazing asset to the Ipswich school system for his work not only as head of the Social Studies Dept but for all his additional work with the Performing Arts Center and all his “tekkies” as well as his work with the junior community service requirement. Scott is calling a mandatory NHS meeting this week to work out the details of the drive. I’ll update this post once I have more to share.
In the meantime, get the kids involved and start going through the outgrown or unused winter clothes in your house. Cradles to Crayons follows a “good enough for your own child” guideline, something to keep in mind.
