I've been involved as a member of the Charity Newsies for 17 years and I joined for the main reason that we are a local charity. Everyone we help is local. All money received stays local and we have one purpose and only one - provide brand new school clothes to the needy children of the area. Getting to work here and see the smiling faces of the children when they receive a brand new coat or watching them carrying out a bag of new clothes that is just for them is all the affirmation I need that we're doing something good. Serving on the board, I can personally attest to the fact that we do everything we can to minimize our expense and maximize the money spent on the clothing.
