In the Season of Giving
Before Conferences/Thanksgiving Break our Middle School students rallied behind a warm clothes collection initiative for our friends less fortunate than us. This community event was facilitated through House Council and sponsored by Ferlin House. There were several dedicated collection days for the warm clothing drive, as we are focusing on coats/jackets/sweatshirts (November 8th), gloves, hats, and scarves (November 14th), and new socks (November 17th).
We were thrilled to have Lower School help support the new sock drive, as this is the item that is typically in most need this season of the year for our homeless and less fortune families in the community.
This was our Middle School assembly update regarding our progress as of the 16th:
We now have over 300 items collected to date. Any items your family may find over the break will be happily accepted and the drive/collection goes through November 29th. All items will still be counted toward our house council competitions.
