Donate winter clothes and sports equipment

donationboxPlease consider donating to Horizons and Blues’ Closet this fall.

As you look through your closets, please consider gathering your children’s gently used clothing items and donating them to our community. We’re collecting:

  • sporting equipment of any kind, including jerseys, soccer cleats and shin pads, hockey skates and equipment, and lacrosse equipment;
  • outdoor gear, including snow coats and pants, boots, hats, mitts, gloves, and sleeping bags;
  • and books for all children’s reading levels.

Gather your gear and donate it during morning drop-off at the Prep School front circle on Tuesday, Nov. 7 and Wednesday, Nov. 8. Please put your donations into your UCC house colour bin. House points will be awarded according to contributions.

Horizons is a partnership between UCC, other independent schools and the Toronto District School Board. It connects UCC with several publicly funded inner-city schools in the community. Horizons provides learning opportunities and enriches the lives of all students involved.

Blues’ Closet is a Prep Parents’ Organization initiative which collects and maintains sporting equipment, including soccer cleats, hockey helmets, skates, shin pads, basketball shoes and more for use by boys at UCC. If boys don’t have the equipment they need, they can sign out the equipment, use it and return it based on their needs. Blues’ Closet also maintains a collection of outdoor gear at Norval that can be used by UCC boys or other visiting students.
