October Service Project
Our class is partnering with Mrs. Weiser's class to do a coat drive for homeless and needy adults in Gainesville. There are often many coat drives for children, but we are serving those adults who are in need since the cold season is coming upon us. Please go through your closets and send in any coats and blankets that you are no longer using but are still in good condition. *We need large boxes to collect our coats in. If you have access to any, please let me know! Thanks!
