Clothing drive

Students and staff on the eighth grade green team at Middlebrook School collected gently used coats, blankets, hats and other items for the Bridgeport Rescue Mission last month during their 10th annual Coat and Blanket Drive. “When the employees from the shelter arrived at the school to pick up the collected items, students were eager to help load the van with the collected items,” said science teacher Carol Festa. The donations will be given to residents and visitors of the shelter to help keep them warm this winter. Click here to learn more about the Bridgeport Rescue Mission.
