Our Kids Can Too action club holds a clothing drive each year. The donations are delivered to New Circles, a local organisation the provides a clothing bank and other services to newly arrived immigrant families.
Students collect the clothing over a week in November, assisting parents dropping off in the morning, storing the bags, and keeping everything organised. At the end of the collection period, the bags are loaded into a school bus by a chain of kids passing them through the school and out the front walk to be packed onto the bus. When they arrive at New Circles, Kids Can Too kids unload the bags, and spend the afternoon sorting clothes for the clothing bank.
Kids Can Too delivered 101 bags of clothing this year, just in time for winter!
We are proud of our students' efforts to take action locally and to know that SBS is able to make a difference for New Circles.
