Jenny's Jackets Project
In memory of Ms. Elder (07-08 1st grade teacher), who was always concerned about children needing jackets, we are collecting jackets for children. As you clean out your closets, please send in your jackets that are in good condition. We will get them to the children who need them. Thank you! Please contact Mrs. Johnson our Counselor at email@example.com, if you or someone you know has a clothing need.
- New underwear in sizes 8-14, male and female
- Larger-sized clothing in good condition in the size 12-16 range for males and females.
