Neighbor-Neighbor plans clothing drive for back to school

With back to school time just weeks away, it’s time to go out and do the shopping for the latest fashions and must-have school supplies every child looks forward to receiving in preparation for the new school year.

But getting new clothes as well as notebooks and pens is also a chance for people to help Greenwich’s families in needs. Neighbor to Neighbor is holding a clothing drive for back to school and is asking people to donate to it. The organization is asking for gently used outgrown kids’ clothes, sneakers, shoes and extra school supplies and drop them off at Neighbor to Neighbor’s headquarters at the Christ Church campus at 248 East Putnam Avenue.

The Clothing Room at Neighbor to Neighbor is set up like a small store allowing qualified clients to “shop” in an atmosphere of kindness and dignity. Volunteers will be on hand to help people with selection and to stock the shelves with newly donated items, but the organization says it can only do this through the “generosity of our neighbors to keep the clothing shelves well-stocked.”

According to Neighbor to Neighbor, every month, more than 1,400 individuals from the greater Greenwich community receive free clothing for their entire family.

Donations are needed as soon as possible. Neighbor to Neighbor is open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and on Thursday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. to receive donations.

Neighbor to Neighbor will be closed for renovations beginning Saturday, Aug. 25 and will re-open Tuesday, Sept. 4. For further information, please call 203-622-9208.
