Students Collect Boxes of Clothes for Domestic Violence Shelter
Students Collect Boxes of Clothes for Domestic Violence Shelter

Students at one local high school have come together to help women and children in need in southern Nevada.

The students of Sierra Vista High School spent the past school year donating and collecting their old Physical Education uniforms and athletic shoes.

The effort started last year when Chelsa Bello noticed fellow students throwing away their old clothes. This year, Bello brought the idea of collecting those clothes to the school's Renaissance Club.

The idea took off, and students donated nine boxes of clothing to Safe Nest. The clothes will first be used to stock the closets at the domestic violence shelter.

Clothes that are not used by the shelter will be sold through a partnership with Saver's Thrift Stores. The money raised by the sales goes back to Safe Nest.

The students will make the official donation during a ceremony Tuesday.
