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 2018 BCS PTA clothing drive runs Wednesday, December 5th through Wednesday, December 12th. Bring donations to any BCS campus. NEW socks & underwear sizes 4T - adult (big boys sized boxers are especially needed). Please note: this year, the clothing center has also requested donations of gloves and winter hats. This is a vital source of clothing for students in need throughout the district.
Attention middle school students looking for community service hours! We need students to count and bag incoming donations at Fernwood immediately after school Wed 12/5 through Wed 12/12. Volunteer for just one day or all six! Estimated time commitment: 30-60 minutes. Contact: brendafrink at gmail.com or zoeykohn at gmail.com
