Paxton Campus strengthening the community

At Paxton Campus in Leesburg, Virginia, a crew of employees with disabilities are giving back to the community. They have Maggie's Closet, a free clothing store for families and individuals in need and/or in crisis in the community. The students and adults with disabilities in these programs learn how to collect, sort, wash and hang all of the clothing that is donated to Maggie’s Closet. The store is part of their STEP Up On-Campus Vocational Training Program that is designed for adults who are able to work independently, but may need extra support. They take all clothing donations. They are also partnering with the Loudon County Homeless Shelter to make lunches twice a month. Fore more information, and how you can help at their website here!
