ACT CLOTHING DRIVE- JUNE 1-5 ?AM DROP-OFF
This year, the ACT (Caring Active Teens) class voted to support the needs of a few local organizations who provide services to children and teens. One organization who made a presentation to the class was CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). This organization provides an adult who can help support children or teens (birth to 18 yrs) who do not have legal parents or guardians. These advocates represent the children’s or teens’ best interests in a court of law, and help connect them to other important services, such as Lane County Foster Care, and Bags of Love.
When asked how the ACT class might support their work, CASA shared that one of their greatest needs is clothing for the children and teens they serve. Therefore, the ACT class will sponsor an end-of-the-year clothing drive for ages 0-18 the last full week of school, June 1-5. Please drop off (or send a bag with your student) any gently used and washed articles of clothing for ages infants through teens BEFOREschool starts any morning the week of the clothing drive. ACT students will be waiting at a table just outside the front office in the Commons area to receive your donation. On behalf of the ACT class, we thank you in advance for your participation in supporting such an important cause! Your donation will directly impact youth in our local community.
