NEW CANAAN, Conn. – Fairfield County residents will be a bit warmer this winter thanks in part to New Canaan’s Reed Schultz.

Schultz, a student at the Brunswick School, coordinated his second annual Thanks-for-Giving Clothing Drive.

Nearly 1,900 pounds of clothing and household items were collected in the holiday clothing drive.

The clothing was given to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Connecticut Foundation. Established in 2009, the foundation assists Big Brothers Big Sisters by providing money for its mentoring programs, enabling the agency to continue serving children and families across southwestern Connecticut.

“We are thrilled by the high volume of household items and clothes that were donated by the drive Reed Schultz organized, which will help to serve the local children who need mentors,” said Ken Kuntz, operations manager for Big Brothers Big Sisters. 

Schultz’s first clothing drive last winter collected more than 500 articles of clothing.
