Sock and Underwear Drive
The BCS PTA collects donations for the Portland PTA Clothing Center year-round via a donation box outside the Fernwood campus library, and through our annual sock and underwear drive.
Every year, over 2,000 students from across the PPS district visit the Clothing Center at Marshall Campus to meet their basic needs. Their goal is to give 3-5 pairs of new socks and underwear to every student, but it doesn't happen without donations.
The 2019 BCS Socks & Underwear Drive is scheduled for Dec. 11–18. BCS will be collecting new socks and underwear (sizes 4T to adult) for the PPS PTA Clothing Center.
Look for the donation box in the lobby of each of our campus buildings, and consider donating if you are able. We are also still looking for parent volunteers to help count and bag the donations after school each day, particularly at Hollyrood. This will take only about 30 minutes per day and can be done anytime after school until the office staff leaves for the day. Sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/
