Student Share What You Wear Program is a Success
Through the generosity of Orange High School students and the community, the “Share What you Wear” clothing drive in December collected more than 900 items of clothing, which were counted, sorted, folded, and bagged by Mrs. Carla Nazelli’s crew of tireless students. OHS senior Jordan Davis is this year’s chairman for “Share What You Wear”.
“I really wanted to look for something that would help the community and when my friend Ally [Zabell] introduced this to me, I was so excited,” said Davis. “She said she needed someone to help her run it and eventually take it over, and I just jumped on it. I worked on it last year helping to collect and then the sale, when we give all the clothes away in the summer, and now I’m running it myself, so it’s very rewarding.
“To come in here and see everyone working and to see the program manifested in so many different ways with the sorting and how everyone is able to find something to help with, it’s just so rewarding and it makes me feel so happy to be involved with it,” he added.
“Share What You Wear” is a non-profit charity program at Orange High School that collects new or gently used kids' clothing and school supplies. Student volunteers will host a “shopping trip” in August 2013 where families in need bring the children in their care to a temporary "store" for some back-to-school shopping. This program was created several years ago by OHS alumni Zoe Baris and Samantha Zabell when they were students.
