Student Collects Sweatshirts For Homeless


Share post:

Christopher Festa, who is going into eighth grade in the fall, is conducting a service project and looking for some help from the community. He is collecting new or gently used sweatshirts for the homeless, with a goal of 100 sweatshirts before the summer is over. Any size youth or adult, as well as, any style–zipper, crew or hoodie–would be welcome.

If you can help Chris reach his goal for “One Hundred Hoodies For The Homeless”, drop your sweatshirts off in the plastic box outside the garage at his parents’ house at 4 Windemere Road, which is one of the streets opposite Verona Park just past Our Lady of the Lake. Or you can give your donation to any member of his family any time you see them.
