Jr. YMA will be hosting a clothing drive. This is the season for giving, so in that spirit, if you can spare any new or gently used items to help keep someone less fortunate warm in these cold days, then please donate. We are asking for items such as coats, jackets, gloves, scarves, etc. Please see Mr. Marshall if you have questions.
Keep our Earth healthy! Students & staff are reminded to recycle & terra-cycle using the available bins in the front lobby and the cafeteria. Students remember to collect your items from lunch and recycle them too! Some example items for collection are:
—All bottles & caps from mouthwash & deodorant
—Aluminum & plastic drink pouches with straws or spouts
Thank you in advance for your participation!
