It’s the end of a busy pool season, and one town is trying to clear out its lost and found. Anything left behind is going to a good cause.
“We have shirts, shorts, shoes, towels, water bottles, glasses, I think that there’s a Fitbit over there,” said Denise Raymond, pool director at Simsbury Farms. “Tennis rackets, flotation devices, you name it we probably have it.”
Raymond is trying to get the word out there before summer ends. She posted photos online, and some people have claimed their stuff.
Whatever is left at the end of the season will go to Gifts of Love in Simsbury. It’s a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families in the Greater Hartford area.
“It’s wonderful,” Raymond said. “I would hate to see it all be thrown away. So, I’m glad it’s going to be able to be passed on to someone else could use it.”
“Anything we can do to help each other out as a community and help people that have lost something it’s the only way to go,” said pool member, Donna Swanson.
The pool at Simsbury Farms closes on August 27, so members have until then to claim their belongings.
“I think it’s a fantastic cause what they do here,” said Jody Lowy of Simsbury.
