Meet Arghya: A dedicated EBC supporter who created her own collection site
Arghya first learned about EBC four years ago when she was in 6th grade. She spent a few hours volunteering her time filling Big Bundles and connected with the EBC mission; she loved having a hand in picking out clothing for a local child who really needed them.
After that experience Arghya knew she wanted to continue helping the kids that EBC serves. Making a regular volunteer shift wasn’t going to be possible because she wasn’t driving yet, and both of her parents worked full time. She would have to find another way.
That other way came in the form of hosting a drive. Arghya decide she would talk to all of her family and friends and ask them to bring the clothing that their children had outgrown to her house so she could deliver them to EBC. Her first drive was a big success – so she decided to host another, and another, and another.
Now four years later, Arghya runs a perpetual drive from her garage. Her friends and family automatically bring her the clothes their kids outgrow. She organizes them according to gender and size, and when she has enough, she and her mom bring them to the EBC Hub. Currently Arghya is dropping off 15 to 20 bags of clothing once or twice a year!Meet Our Board of Directors and Leadership
