Plus, Read with STRIDE event on Sunday
Good morning and happy weekend, Burlington!
Lots of events happening in town this week, but first, some notes.
The MSMS Student Council food and necessities drive is going on from now until February 14. If you have a middle schooler in your life, ask them what you can bring to help their team in supporting the community.
There are textiles collection bins at all Burlington schools where you can drop off your unwanted textiles. This keeps textiles out of landfills, and when Bay State Textiles picks them up, the schools get a monetary donation.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is also doing residential textile collection by appointment.
