On behalf of the Howell Optimist Club, I will be helping them with their clothing drive fund raiser. All their fubds raised are used to benefit the youths in our community.  Amongst their many programs are scholarships  (see your high school guidance counselor for info) and Breakfast with Santa. A number of the troop scouting families have received scholarships from the Club and a number have benefited and helped with the Breakfast with Santa program.
ACCEPTABLE ITEMS included (but not limited to) clothing, bedding, draperies, stuffed animals, books, small kitchen appliances, dishes, pots, household

UNACCEPTABLE ITEMS INCLUDE: large appliances, baby items, large toys, furniture, large tools and garden equipment.

The drive will take place on Saturdays in March. We will be accepting items in the parking lot of the Investors Savings Bank at the intersection of Rte. 9 North and Elton-Adelphia Road. The hours of collection will be 9:00am to 1:00pm or bring them to the Troop meeting on Wednesday and I will deliver it to them.
