Kids Raise Money to Community Warm
11/29/2012 (Updated 10:26:26 PM)Johnson City Middle School students are raising money and helping keep the community warm.
The students have set up a campus clothes shop this week. Every year parents, faculty and fabulous finds a Vestal consignment shop.
Donate lightly used clothes to the school. Students stay after school and sell the items for just one dollar a bag. All money raised goes towards the school's leadership program and a field trip.
"Having clothes brought into the school during parent-teacher conference time gave parents in the community a chance to give a contribution to the school and also take away some our school," says Barbara Mullen, School Social Worker.
"It makes me feel good that we are helping out the community and helping provide people with clothes," says Amanda Sprauge-Getsy, Eight Grade Student.
Organizers say this year has been their best turnout yet in over five years of the program. They were on pace to sell over 70 bags of clothes.
