SCHOOLA Clothing Drive for CCS – May 1 through May 26
Our Schoola clothing drive starts today! Bring your pre-loved women’s and children’s clothing to school during May and place them in our drive bins (located in the hallway across from Mr. Lempa’s office). Schoola will collect your donations, prep and sell them online, and give 40% of the proceeds (minus the cost of inbound shipping) back to our school to help fund programs for our students. That’s $2 out of every $5 earned back to our school! If you are inspired to do some spring cleaning, your closet is a great place to start and CCS is a great place to donate!
