On a brisk, yet sunny March day, students from JFK Middle School ventured out to SAVERS in Holbrook with Mrs. Klein, Mrs. Keller and Mrs. Quinn.

SAVERS is no ordinary thrift store. As a leader and pioneer in the retail thrift industry, they're a place where people from all backgrounds love to shop for great selection, deals and treasures. But there’s also a higher purpose for what we do. Savers was founded in 1954 on principles such as giving back and providing opportunities—core values we still embrace today.

All of our students donated clothing to the store. We toured the backroom to see how the items are classified to either sell in the store or ship to a third-world country. We all shopped with our 20% coupon, which we received because we donated. The bus ride home was fun. We were all sharing what bargains we found at SAVERS.
