THANKS TO YOU, WE FILLED THE BUS!
The Catie's Closet bus traveled throughout MA & NH on Friday and Saturday, August 12 and 13. Throughout our journey, we exceeded our goal and collected over 25,000 pieces of clothing and toiletries and raised over $8,000 (and still counting!). This was our first Fill the Bus event and we were completely overwhelmed by your outreach and willingness to help students succeed. A tremendous thank you to our compassionate sponsors, gracious employees and generous community. You made this possible.
