Published DateMEREDITH — Kidworks Learning Center is still accepting gently used clothing from infant to adult sizes as part of its 4th Annual Clothing Drive.
Donations can be dropped off at Kidworks Learning Center on 37 Reservoir Road in Meredith and at the Meredith Village Savings Bank, Route 104 Branch through February 15.
Kidworks hosted their first clothing drive in February 2010 and hadn't imagined how successful it would be, both from the outpouring of clothing donations to the turnout at the Meredith Community Center for distribution. Since then Kidworks has continued on and made "Clothe Our Community" an annual event.
On Saturday, February 16 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Meredith Community Center the free clothing will be distributed. Anyone in need is encouraged to come by fill up a bag. The donations are not being sold for profit and 100% of this effort goes back to the community.
Jen Weeks Executive Director of notes "Kidworks is proud to put on this event. We encourage our children to help others and this provides them with a hands-on experience. It truly is a team effort, the children, families and community donate clothing and our staff sorts and displays the items for the drive."
"Meredith Village Savings Bank is thrilled to provide donation locations that are convenient for the public to participate. We commend Kidworks on their commitment to helping others" said Charleen Hughes, MVSB, Route 104 Branch Manager.
The event is not sponsored by the Meredith Community Center. For more information about the "Clothe Our Community" effort contact Kidworks at 279-.6633.
