Not too long ago, we decided to launch another clothing drive for Serving Kids. We sent out the call to help and several people signed up to be volunteer drop locations. A huge thanks to Lu Ann, Nina, Sally Kate, Cody, Lorri, Margaret, Sue, Annie, Eva, Sarah, Kay, Michele, and Nicole!
It started out small with a few bags dropped here and there.
We were so excited! We loved that slowly but surely, we were making a difference for the kids of Jeffco!
Then, the community really got into it and donated carload after carload! A kitchen manager at one school started a drive as well as a music teacher at another! Between that work and a bunch of moms telling their friends to clean out their closets, we made a tremendous difference!
These pictures don’t even come close to representing how much we collected.
Today, these six year old twins and their incredible mom drove from their home in the mountains to Arvada to fill my SUV to the top yet again! Front, back, and passenger seat as well! That tops off the 2017 Spring Cleaning Drive!
Thanks to you, Jeffco! You always show that you Support Jeffco Kids! Until our next community service project, our Spring Cleaning link at the top of our website will continue to show one or two locations where you can drop off items year round as you clean out your closets or decide to purchase new socks or underwear to donate. If you want to your location added, just let us know! We’ll be back in the fall with another formal clothing drive and school supply drive.
