CT-ALIVE’s Never Going Back to Abuse Project will benefit from the proceeds of a Clothing and Book Drive on Saturday, October 19, 2013 to mark October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  In cooperation with Charities of Hope of Hartford, CT-ALIVE will hold the drive from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the Dillon Mailing and Printing, 114 Shield Street in West Hartford, across from the Shield Street Post Office near New Britain Avenue.

 On that day, CT-ALIVE and Charities of Hope will accept gently used clothing as well as shoes, boots, coats, linens and comforters.  Also accepted will be books including hardcovers and paperbacks, CDs, DVDs, audio books and textbooks. Please no magazines, VHS tapes, catalogs or encyclopedias.
