On Saturday Feb. 13 from 9 am – 1 pm you can bring your gently used clothing linens, shoes and handbags to Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley at 1 Positive Place in Shelton. This clothing drive is hosted by the Lavietes Unit Keystone Club to help raise funds to support the Boys & Girls Club. They are very excited to have New York Giants Player, Jerome Cunningham, attending the event in support of the Lavietes Unit Keystone Club.

For every pound of clothing collected Big Brothers Big Sisters Foundation will donate 20 cents to the Boys & Girls Club and the pounds can really add up. Big Brothers Big Sisters has been offering local non-profits, sports teams, churches and schools the opportunity to run a “pay-by-the-pound” clothing drives for the past year and half and has conducted more than 200 in our area providing critical funds to groups in the area at no cost to them.
