What We're doing

  • Andy's Attic is a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization run completely by student volunteers at South High Community School.
  • In the 2015-2016 school year, Andy's Attic has filled over 1000 bags of clothing for students and families throughout Worcester County.  
  • With the hard work and dedication of South High Students and charitable donations, we were able to provide new socks, new undergarments, gently used clothing and even new sneakers to teenagers and their families.  
  • Each day our student volunteers come to Andy's Attic during their free periods and after school to volunteer their time.
  • Students sort and put donations on shelves, fill orders, write thank you cards, track orders that have been sent out, write letters to organizations for donations, and make phone calls to organizations to let them know their orders are ready for pick up.
