Westy Self Storage of 80 Brownhouse Road in Stamford, Conn., is the designated drop-off location for a new “Four for Four” charity-donation drive that benefits local not-for-profit organizations: Dress for Success of Mid-Fairfield County, Friends Book Shop at the Ferguson Library, Laurel House, and Operation Santa. The drive starts today and will continue through Dec. 1.
In addition to serving Westy will provide storage for the donations and supply final delivery via Westy truck to the respective organizations.
Dress for Success promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support, and the career development tools to help them thrive in work and life. Collection items include women’s professional attire in excellent condition.
Ferguson Library Friends Book Shop sells quality used books at reasonable prices to provide financial support for the mission of the Friends of Ferguson Library. Items for collection include books, music and movies in good, saleable condition.
Laurel House’s mission is to provide resources and opportunities for people with mental illness to lead rewarding, self-sustaining lives in their community. Collection items include gently worn men’s and women’s clothing.
Operation Santa collects and distributes Thanksgiving dinner, winter coats and toys to underprivileged families of Benjamin Franklin School. Items for this collection include non-perishable food items.
