VASJ High School Helps Pack at Warehouse
The clothing that SC4K distributes arrives at the warehouse in huge pallets. SC4K relies on volunteer groups to donate their time and services to sort, count and pack the clothing into smaller boxes for our distribution partners. Recently, a group of 25 students from Villa Angela-St. Joseph High School in Cleveland spent a half-day at the warehouse as part of their annual retreat. The students worked very hard and quickly packed up hundreds of boxes of clothing for children in need. VASJ students have also volunteered in the past to sell raffle tickets at the Heart & Sole Luncheon. Many hands make light work!
