The Amity Student Government will begin a clothing drive after the holiday break.

Take some time over the holiday break to clean out your closets.

All donations go to the Birmingham’s Domestic Violence Shelter.

Last January’s drive was a huge success and the Student Government hopes to match or exceed those contributions this January.

Orange Live will have full information as soon as it becomes available.

The Amity Student Government is now sponsoring its annual clothing drive.  All donated clothes benefit BHcare’s, Centers for Domestic Violence.  Men, women and children receive these items.

Advisor Len Marazzi said, “BHcare serves the greater Naugatuck Valley, New Haven, North Haven and the shoreline.  More than 2,000 items have been donated thus far.  The drive ends Friday, Jan. 25.”

This year’s donations so far.

If you would like to donate just stop by Amity H.S. and drop off your items in the boxes in the front of school.

With just one week remaining, Amity students especially are encouraged to participate. Bring in one bag of clothing you no longer wear to help those less fortunate.
