Amity High School in Woodbridge, CT recently concluded their annual clothing drive for My Sister’s Place (MSP). MSP is a unique family thrift shop located in Ansonia CT. All proceeds from the thrift shop benefit the Center for Domestic Violence Services (CVDS).
The clothing drive is an annual program run by the student government. This year marks the 10th year of this great event. Over 200 bags of clothes were donated by the students this year.
Advisor Len Marazzi stated “Our students, faculty and community respond to this drive every year with great enthusiasm. They understand just how great the need is and want to be part of the solution”.
CDVS, a program of BHcare, provides free, confidential services to over 9,000 victims of domestic violence and their children each year. Services such as emergency shelter, 24-hour crisis hotlines, walk-in crisis center, counseling, advocacy and other supports are provided to those fleeing from domestic abuse.
CDVS was formerly known as The Umbrella and Domestic
Violence Services of Greater New Haven.
