Clothes for Kids Project to Benefit Military Families at Hunter

Children's Clothing Donations Accepted Through December 9

(November 29, 2011) - The Greek Council and the Educational Technology Training Center at Armstrong Atlantic State University have joined forces for a special service project, donating new and gently used children's clothing to families at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah.

The Clothes for Kids Project has set up clothing collection boxes on Armstrong Atlantic State University campus and at various sites in the Savannah community. Off-campus boxes will be set up at the Publix at Twelve Oaks Shopping Center, the Publix at Largo Plaza, the Big Lots on Abercorn Extension and the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Precinct at Oglethorpe Mall. Members of the public are invited to donate children's clothing for infants through age 18 at any collection box through Friday, December 9.

“We invite the public to donate children's clothing to this student-led initiative and to make a difference in the lives of local military families,” said Wendy Marshall, director of the Educational Technology Training Center at Armstrong. “This is a great way to show community support for military families, particularly during the holiday season.”

On December 12 and 13, Hunter Army Airfield families who have filled out an interest form will be invited to the Armstrong Center, located at 13040 Abercorn St., to pick up boxes of clothing. Parents will be required to show their military ID when they arrive for pick-up. Any leftover clothing will be donated to a local charity.
