50 Ways of Giving: Clothing Drive

There is one week left to participate in Villa di Maria’s current community outreach project: Children’s Clothing Drive for Helping Hand-Me-Downs (HHMD). HHMD works to enhance the quality of life for children and families in the St. Louis area by meeting their immediate needs, then connecting them with life-changing resources that foster independence. Immediate needs include clothing and other essential items needed to care for young children. 

Villa di Maria is collecting gently used and/or new clothing for children of all ages, and clothing for any season is accepted: sleepers, onesies, shorts, pants, shirts, skirts, dresses, socks, coats, hats, scarves and mittens. With spring around the corner (and seemingly at our back doors), now would be a wonderful time to enlist help from your children to go through closets and drawers to collect clothing that has been outgrown.

Please drop off clean clothing at VdM during drop-off or in your child’s classroom, and thank you!
