To the editor:

An update on The Body Shop at Newton High School:  we have had 152 customers (some repeat customers) come through the doors to pick up personal care items, such as shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, and laundry soap, for no cost. 

One of the most amazing parts about the venture is seeing how much this community cares. Almost everyday, I go downstairs to the teacher mailroom and have products and shopping bags waiting for me that people have donated. 

The generosity of Newton is amazing and has been a blessing. A special thank you to Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and the Haven Vineyard Church for recent, large donations of products for students at Newton High School.  

Prom is coming up and donations of make up and hair products (spray, bobby pins, etc) are welcome as are general personal care products. 

Thanks again, for making this a great place to work and live.
