BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Bridgewater-Raritan High School student, and girl scout, Ariel Staffin is running a clothing drive from March 6 through March 24 as part of her Gold Award project.

Called the Fabric and Fashion drive, it is also being sponsored by the BRHS Key Club.

All clothes will be donated through FISH to local Somerset County families in need.

“I chose this project because I wanted to find a way to reach out to local families,” Staffin said. “ The organization with which I am working, FISH, distributes clothes to over 1,200 families throughout Somerset, Middlesex and Union counties.”

Staffin said she has seen food drives done through FISH, and she wanted to find another way to donate to them.

“I want to encourage and inspire people to look for ways to reach out to local organizations because they never know who they may end up helping,” she said. “It may be their next door neighbor.”

In addition, at the conclusion of the drive, Staffin will be holding a fashion show, March 21 in the cafeteria high school.

Clothing must be gently used or new, and machine washable. It is requested that people do not donate clothing that is ripped, torn, stained or dry clean only. 

Drop-off locations are the Bridgewater-Raritan High School, Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School, Hillside Intermediate School and Eisenhower Intermediate School.
