Avon Student Organizes Winter Clothing Drive For Women's Shelter
Avon resident Jack Eschert hand delivered bags of hats and gloves at the Cornerstone Foundation in Vernon. Eshcert collected the items at Avon Old Farms School, where he is a sophomore, by placing bins around campus and encouraging his classmates to donate gently used items they no longer needed. He did all of it through his charity, Helping Hands For CT, which aims to help those less fortunate through donation drives ranging from clothing and winter wear to school supplies. The Cornerstone Foundation is a shelter in Vernon for women who face domestic violence.
