CHARLTON — You've probably seen those giant metal bins that sit at storefronts and in parking lots, collecting used clothing for the needy.

Perhaps you've even thrown a sack or two in, because after all, as Heritage School teacher Tara Trufan said, "Who doesn't have a bag of extra clothes at their house?"

But instead of dropping those bags anonymously into bins, without ever knowing where your donations end up, why not keep them local?

That's the thought behind Heritage School's new "Swap Shoppe," a campaign to collect and distribute children's clothes to families right here in town, spearheaded by Trufan.
