“ATTITUDE WITH GRATITUDE”

They call it “The Attitude of Gratitude Program.” 12 year old Cloe Brown decided to take action and help those people in need after she saw people wearing worn and tattered clothing.  So, she started her first clothing drive with the help of her grandparents, filling plastic trash bags full of clothes to donate to the Omaha Door Mission.

But, Cloe thought “why stop there?” and printed off 34 hand made fliers to collect even more donations.  If you would like to support Cloe, she’s piling up items at Grandma’s house for her latest drive.

People who want to contribute can contact Cloe at cbrown@emschools.org, or call Huetter at 712-520-3000.
