Key Club promotes Project Refresh

Now until April 12, the OHS Key Club will be holding a clothing drive to donate to Project Refresh, a project and a store that sells clothing to foster children for very little money.

Project Refresh is part of the Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition, a non-profit agency that works to find permanent homes for foster children and provides support for both foster parents and children. Because foster children have a clothing budget of only about 100 dollars per year, Project Refresh helps out by selling clothing 90 percent off to the foster children.

“I think Project Refresh is an awesome group,” said Key Club member Adam Pleimann (11), “and the amount of motivation in the Project is deserving of donations.”

Clothing in good condition from sizes youth 12 and up, wearable shoes, accessories, swimwear, and other items such as games can be given to Mrs. Blasi in room 215 or the athletic office by April 12.
