Bringing a Little Warmth to Those Less Fortunate

Youth Council Kicks off 30 Days of Giving

Every year, over 200 Rochester Hills’ employees participate in their annual 30 days of giving program. The Rochester Hills Youth Council is stepping up to help those in need this winter by hosting a clothing drive from now through December 1.  

Their team of 13 students will be collecting any gently used or new clothing such as socks, snow pants, sweatshirts, and hats at multiple locations through the Greater Rochester area. Youth Council members will sort and deliver the items donated to Neighborhood House.

“Our youth council has consistently found ways to help make a difference in the community,” states Mayor Bryan K. Barnett. “We are so proud of their efforts this year and can’t wait to see the impact they make.” 

Youth Council Liaison Danielle A. Szajna said the team outlined their community involvement goals and wanted to focus on helping those in the community that cannot afford the clothing needed to stay warm this winter. 

“As leaders at their schools and in the community, our youth council members recognize the importance of giving back, and have made it a priority every year,” states Szajna. “They are so excited about this project and look forward to providing  local families with winter clothing.”
