We also delivered a variety of clothing to the eight Title 1 schools we serve. Six schools requested winter jackets, and we provided them with 82 coats in different sizes and colors for boys and girls and added the essential accessories: gloves, hats, and scarves. The colorful hats, scarves, and headbands were handmade by our friends in the Dumbarton Hugs Team and the Nativity Craft Club. We also delivered more than 470 clothing items to the eight schools, such as sweatpants and sweatshirts, leggings, T-shirts, and tops, reflecting items on each school’s request. In November, we plan to provide more warm winter clothing based on the schools’ needs. .
Our philanthropic programs aim to help develop well-rounded students by addressing the whole child’s needs. With our October packing, we provided students in need with two essentials: nourishing food and warm clothing. We are also proud that these packing events include a team that breaks down all the cartons and boxes for recycling.
