New Canaan student's clothing drive sets a record
Reed Schultz, a Brunswick School student and resident of New Canaan, coordinated his second annual Thanks-for-Giving Clothing Drive, which collected 1,895 pounds of clothing and household items for Big Brothers Big Sisters of SWCT Foundation.
Operations Manager Ken Kuntz said, "We are thrilled by the high volume of household items and clothes that were donated by the drive Reed Schultz organized which will help to serve the local children who need mentors."
Fairfield County Bank served as the partner and collection sites.
Schultz's drive was the largest coordinated thus far by one sponsor both in number of locations participating and total weight of clothing collected for the foundation.
Established in 2009, the Big Brothers Big Sisters SWCT Foundation assists Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Connecticut by providing funding for its mentoring programs, enabling the agency to continue serving children and families across southwestern Connecticut.
