As a kick off to the new year, the school’s Key Club service organization will sponsor a ‘GoGreenDrop‘ charity initiative from Jan. 14 until Jan. 25.

“Go GreenDrop’ is an organization that provides a convenient way to donate gently used clothing and household goods to assist charitable programs around the country. Typically, these items are then sold by these charities to thrift stores.

GreenDrop supports four major charities including the Purple Heart, The Red Cross, the National Federation of the Blind, and St. Vincent de Paul. The Key Club chose Purple Heart as the charity that will receive the donations this year. The donated items from students will be given to veterans who have received a Purple Heart or who are members of the various Purple Heart programs, who need clothing and household items that they can’t afford or don’t have access to.

According to gogreendrop.com, the organization accepts all articles of clothing, shoes, blankets and bedding, as well as tools, collectibles, kitchenware, toys, small appliances, electronics, musical instruments and sporting goods.

Once collected, Key Club members will hand deliver the items to the charity drop off location in Woodbridge, Virginia.

“With a large military presence in our area, its wonderful that we have the opportunity to give back to them and all they have done for our country. The members of the club are very excited to make a change a veteran’s life and to see how giving a little can do a lot,” Key Club sponsor Maria Faircloth said.

Donations can be dropped off in room 227.
