“Pass It On” Clothing Drive

As part of our Kick-Off to our Community of Caring this year, our school is participating in a clothing drive from September 22-26, called “Pass It On” (at St. Mary’s School). Our goal is to collect 1 donated item of clothing from each student in our school. The clothing will then be picked up and distributed to homeless and needy families in Calgary.

If you wish to participate in this drive, please send one piece per student of new or gently used (freshly laundered, please) winter clothing to school the week of September 22-25. Some examples of items we are collecting are winter coats, jeans, mittens, toques, or hoodies, but please feel free to send in a different piece of clothing not listed. Any size, child or adult, would be appropriate.

If you would like to volunteer to help sort clothing on September 26th, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Jennifer Raffard at jraffard@shaw.ca
Thank you for your support.
