STAB Students Donating Clothes to Hope Community Center

Dec. 11, 2013

Students at St. Anne's Belfield School in Charlottesville are retiring their uniforms for a day and it's all for a good cause.

They're participating in "Dress Down" day to help the Hope Chest in Charlottesville.

Students can either donate $5, two pairs of socks, or other clothing items.

In exchange for the donation, they can dress down for the day instead of wearing their school uniform.

All donations will benefit the Hope Chest and help families in need in the Charlottesville area.

"It makes me feel good to help other people that need help and to give back," said Mya Carr, Student, St. Anne's Belfield School.

If you'd like to join the students in their effort to help the Hope Chest, you can drop off new and gently used clothing, toys and household items to the Hope Community Center at 342 11th Street NW in Charlottesville.

Families in need can come out to pick up items at the Hope Chest on December 21 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
