Kelley School PTA recently collected eight boxes of winter clothing items, and delivered them to Newark Food Closet.
The recent clothing drive at Kelley Elementary School in Newark brought in 153 items, including coats, snow pants, hats, gloves, scarves, mitten sets, boots and snowsuits in all sizes.
PTA secretary Michele DeYulio delivered the items to Lisa Barrett and Becky Jandreau, co-chairmen of Newark Food Closet. The closet is housed in the basement of the Newark Municipal Building.
DeYulio said the gently used and new donations will help keep area residents safe and warm throughout the winter.
Kelley School PTA members involved in the drive included Amber Benedict, membership chairman; Ann Cary, president; DeYulio; and Juli Scharett, treasurer.
