Clothing Drive

The Common Threads ProjectOur high school emotional support students are embarking on a community service project that will teach the students valuable academic and social skills that we hope will help them to develop essential skills for transition to adult life. It is a community clothing drive which we have named "The Common Threads Project". In order to make this project happen we need support from within our school community. As you are home over the holiday break and need to make room in your closets for all your new gifts, we are asking that you consider donating your gently used clothing to this endeavor.
