A local brother and sister duo who run a successful toy drive they formed while in high school also operate a clothing drive for homeless families and veterans. “This is a project that my sister Monica and I started back the same year as the Toy Drive,” said Tyler Slaven.

“We will be gathering clothing items for both homeless families and veterans in need through Thursday, Feb. 7, added Slaven. Our ambitions are to really make a difference in the lives of people who need the help and care in the community.”

The Slavens are collecting new and like-new items. Suggested donations include gloves, scarves, hats, coats, boots, heavy socks, sweatshirts, sweatpants, fleece throws, hand warmers, sleeping bags, lap robes, quilts and blankets (min. size 4’x4’).
