At the end of November, The Council contacted Gifts of Love in Avon to see what they could do to help.
Personnel from Gifts of Love stated that they were in desperate need of toiletries. As a group, it was decided that Student Council would try to raise enough money to fill the empty shelves. They specifically asked that each member provide either a $5-10 donation or one-two items off of the critical needs list that was provided to them.
The Student Council members definitely rose to the occasion.They raised over $170 to buy toiletries as well as received several items that were specifically on the list. Student Co-Presidents Abby Treacy and Lindsay Vacca went to BJ's in Torrington and purchased many other items from the list.
