Helping give kids class… On location TV shoot in Lowell, MA
We were on location today on the Lowell / Dracut line with Mickey Cockrell, the Executive Director of Catie’s Closet.
There are more than 20,000,000 students living in poverty in the U.S. – with 308,000 in Massachusetts and New Hampshire alone. These students are easily identified and feel ostracized by their peers because of what they wear. Catie’s Closet provides an in-school resource so that students have immediate access to like-new clothes, free of charge.
An award winning non profit of 3 sisters helps give kids class. Find out what’s coming out of Catie’s Closet…on the next edition of the Language of Business.
