The Farmington Public Schools were presented with gift cards by the Society of St. Vincent dePaul on Tuesday in appreciation for hosting a community wide clothing drive. The drive, which was held April 15th through April 25th at the Farmington Schools offices, brought in close to 10,000 lbs. of donated clothing and shoes.  The gift cards will be presented to needy families within the school district. They will be able to obtain gently used clothing and shoes from the St. Vincent dePaul Thrift Store in West Bloomfield.

Those who know of families in the Farmington School district who could use a helping hand with a gift card can contact Operation Common Good through www.operationcommongood.org or Hattie Ligon, FPS homeless coordinator, at 248-426-2620.
