Student Initiative | New Circles winter clothing drive
From Monday, November 23 to Friday, November 27, I will be setting up a bin in the main foyer for winter clothing donations to benefit New Circles. The clothing that they desperately need this winter includes:
- winter outerwear (jackets and snowsuits) for the whole family
- winter boots for the whole family
- running shoes for the whole family
- winter mitts and gloves for men/boys
Please look around your house and send in donations with students.
New Circles is a not-for-profit, grassroots agency that builds strong and caring communities by providing basic necessities to those living in poverty. Their core mission is to ensure that local families struggling with poverty can meet their basic need for adequate clothing. Proper clothing is essential to good health, self esteem, social inclusion and employability. Access to free, good quality clothing allows people to spend scarce resources on food, housing and other necessities. A family of four using New Circles clothing service can save up to $5,000 annually.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Andrew Newall, Year 11
