Madelyn Paquette was selected to represent Sudbury for Project 351, an effort to display acts of charity and leadership. Thanks to her latest effort, it's evident why.

Paquette, an eighth grade student at Ephraim Curtis Middle School, kicked off a spring charity event on Monday.

The Sudbury student is running a clothing drive for the community, which will support children in need. She is spearheading the effort along with Curtis Angels, a charitable organization at Curtis Middle School led by school counselor Ivar Henningson.

After beginning on Monday, the drive will run for two weeks at Curtis Middle School. It will end on Friday, March 28.

Some items Paquette seeks are shirts, pants, shorts, sweaters, dresses, jackets, winter coats, hats, mittens, shoes, and infant and toddler outfits. These items will help children from infant to 12 years old.

The drive is designed to collect gently used clothing, but for health reasons socks and pajamas must be donated new.

Donation bins are located in the main lobby of Curtis Middle School. Parents of Curtis students are invited to send donations in to school with their child, while residents with no students can also donate by dropping items in the bins.

Anyone wishing to offer a cash donation can do so through Curtis Angels, which will use the money to pajamas and socks.

For more information, residents are asked to email madelyn.paquette@gmail.com
