TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Children in the Terre Haute Boys and Girls Club camp received new clothes for the new school year Tuesday thanks to the League of Terre Haute.
The league donated a new outfit to each child for the first day of school.
The children also received new books donated from the Vigo County Public Library, as well as a new toothbrush and toothpaste.
The League of Terre Haute has a clothes closet sponsored by the family of Louise L. Sommers that helps make this event possible.
League President Megan Kirk says the children love their new outfits and their smiles speak for themselves.
“We know how good it feels on that first day of school when you can walk into your new classroom and have this new sense of confidence, and just feel really good about walking there, meeting your teacher and your friends, having a fresh new outfit,” Kirk said.
In addition to the clothes closet for Vigo County children, the league also helps kids get dental services.
