From November 29th to December 9th, Capstone Senior Cierra Williams is hosting a clothing drive. Men’s dress clothes, (i.e. ties, button-up shirts, polos, slacks) are requested.

The proceeds will be donated to the Nashville Dismas house, an organization dedicated to aiding the reentry of former offenders back into society.
