On Feb.13 the Boy's and Girl’s Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley collected slightly over 1,000 pounds of clothing for their clothing drive/fundraiser.The event also earned $200 for Boys and Girls Club of the Lower Valley. They collected clothing linens, shoes, handbags and belts. It is a pay by the pound program that helps earn funds for local non-profits, sports teams, churches and more by paying 20 cents a pound for everything collected- any size, any season, any condition. The Big Brothers Big Sisters Foundation have been partnering with over 300 groups over the past year and a half to do these drives and through their collaboration with Savers are able to pay by the pound since they are a non-profit as well. So while people are getting rid of unnecessary items the funds help with a local team or group and support Big Brothers Big Sisters in the area..
