Salvation Army: Giving is better
Kids and their parents are helping the less fortunate with a lot of clothing donations
Some pre-school aged children at Core Education and Fine Arts have learned that lesson early, having donated more than 50 boxes of clothing to the Salvation Army. Councillor Michelle Sparrow joined staff and students last week.
Before Christmas, students were asked to bring in used clothes for donation.
The staff set aside four boxes loaned by the firm It’s Your Move, but principal Nichole Moore said she was “amazed” at how much arrived, and how quickly they ran out of space to store it.
It’s Your Move got several phone calls from the school as the donations piled up.
“We’ve had to phone them three times and ask them for more,” said Rebecca Medeiros, the vice principal.
The school has now filled more than 50 boxes with clothing, shoes, blankets, books, and some adult clothing for good measure.
“It’s a short period of time,” Moore said, noting that everything has arrived since early December.
Everything will be hauled over to the Salvation Army in the near future.
