Jacket and Warm Clothing Drive
From now until the end of November, we will be collecting warm clothing, primarily outerwear, in support of the International Students Admission & Enrollment Office (ISAEO) of the Prince George’s County School System. ISAEO registers and provides support services for international PGCPS students and their families, and has been very busy this fall registering students from migrant families. You can help support these children and their families by donating new or gently used coats and jackets (pre-school sizes through adult medium), as well as hats, scarves, and gloves. Please be sure any used items are clean and in good condition (zippers work, no missing buttons, no rips or tears, etc). Donations should be placed in the bin in the narthex. We are also collecting $25 Target gift cards which can be used to purchase other items students might need. See Ed Neuschler to buy cards through St George's scrip program. Please see Donna Haselton if you have any questions. Thank you for your generosity!
