GROTON -- If you are getting ready for spring cleaning and looking to purge some clothing, please consider donating to Troop 1 Groton and the Epilepsy Foundation as they are working together for a clothing drive. The Scouts will be collecting items on Saturday, April 26 at the Prescott Building on Main Street from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you cannot make this time for drop-off but would like to donate items, please call Natalie at 978-448-6481 to coordinate a pick up.
The Scouts will collect the following items: clothing, bedding (blankets, sheets and comforters) and towels.
All of these items will go to the Epilepsy Foundation, which has been making a difference for people with epilepsy as well as educating the community and developing support networks for families and friends. It seeks to enable people with epilepsy and their families to make decisions and take actions regarding health care, productivity, independence and community participation. The Epilepsy Foundation New England works actively with volunteers, professionals and community organizations to educate the public about epilepsy.
