What is it?
Andy’s Attic is a 501c3 non-profit organization that collects clothing for schools and social service agencies to distribute to needy teenagers.
School nurses and social workers identify the teens in need and then contact Andy’s Attic’s with the gender, size and the first initial of the name. The teen’s identity is never shared with the volunteers of Andy’s Attic.
What is in a package?
Most bags will contain 1 weeks worth of clothing. Ideally we like to include a pair of sneakers/shoes but that depends on the supply. In addition to the seasonal clothing, packages will contain a bag of new socks and undergarments.
Andy’s Attic has been actively providing clothing to kids for the past year, and the requests continue to increase as word spreads about the organization. Proudly, over 300 bags of clothes have been given to teenagers in need of basic items. We have provided support to Worcester South and North High Schools, Shrewsbury High and Middle Schools, Worcester Middle School, Worcester and Leominster Dept of Family Services, Seven Hills Charter School, YOU Inc, Friends of F.I.T. Inc, the South Worcester Neighborhood Center and several other groups. Additionally, we donated nearly a hundred prom gowns and formal wear to a local non-profit organization that offers shopping events for teens needing prom attire.
We are thankful to be helping so many wonderful groups who are working hard to make a difference in the lives of so many families.
