Students at Emerson and Florence Sawyer Schools will hold a clothing drive between March 27 and April 8 to benefit the organization Cradles to Crayons as part of “Project 351,” a statewide youth-driven service organization that “unites an eighth-grade ambassador from every city and town in Massachusetts for a transformative year of leadership development, enrichment, and impact.”

The beneficiary of this clothing drive, Cradles to Crayons, is a Massachusetts nonprofit organization that “provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive—at home, at school and at play.”

Residents can support the clothing drive by donating children’s gently used or like-new clothing and shoes at the Florence Sawyer/Emerson School lobbies (100 Mechanic St., Bolton). Alternatively, clothes can be picked up at your residence. For more information or to arrange a pick-up, email
