Rummaging through closets sparks community contribution


Last summer, Sophia Jones and her friends donated the money from her lemonade stand to the American Cancer Society. Jones has continued her fundraising efforts with her neighbor, Vincent Pascasio. Rummaging through their closets on a cleaning spree, Jones and Pascasio collected all the clothes and toys they no longer used, and on Sept. 13, personally donated them to a migrant farming community that moved from Guerrero, Mexico, to Palmetto.
