We heard from Catie’s Closet. “ We just wanted to say a big thank you for allowing us to put on a Catie's Closet donation drive this year in the schools! We got so many bags of clothes that we had to take about 5 carloads to bring them all to the donation center in Dracut. This wouldn't have happened without all your help as well as GDRSD families.”
