Drop Off Your Drawers and Help Those In Need
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY -- To Love A Child and Think Peace have partnered for a very worthy cause. Every day women and girls in Haiti and Zimbabwe struggle for food, shelter and those bare essentials that make living possible. Education is a luxury that they deserve, but when these young women and girls do not have the proper hygenic tools, including the basic need of undergarments, it proves occasionally impossible to go to school for a week every month.
Missing that time in the classroom is not necessary, and should not happen. A great difference can be made in the lives of these women and children with the simple donation of new, clean panties of all sizes.
To Love A Child and Think Peace would like to have at least 5,000 pairs of panties and will be collecting donations up through Thanksgiving. Drop off points locally are:
- Saratoga Springs YMCA: 290 West Avenue
- Schenectady YMCA: 433 State Street
- YMCA: 21 1st Street, Troy
- Fifi's Frocks and Frills: 1811 Western Ave, Albany
For more information please call (518) 859-4424.
