District Wide Winter Coat Drive for Children - November 8-13, 2020 at the YMCA - Distribution: November 21, 2020
Tue, Nov 10 8:58am

Dear JP Families,

 

In 2020 we have seen record numbers of food and shelter insecurity in our community and this problem persists through the winter months.  Our friends from Community Park is spearheading a winter clothing drive for the entire district and we want to help them!  

 

If you have any gently used children's winter clothing that can be donated, we ask that you please participate in this drive:

 

Children’s Winter Coat & Clothing Drive
Collection: November 8-13
Where: Princeton YMCA, 59 Paul Robeson Place
 
Distribution Event: November 21
Where: Princeton YMCA Field, 59 Paul Robeson Place
 
CP is partnering with the YMCA this year to organize our annual winter clothing drive. The drive will be slightly different than years past because of COVID-19 precautions:
  • We will only collect gently used children's fall and winter clothing, winter coats and snow pants, shoes and boots, and gloves and mittens.
  • All items will be quarantined for one week before the sorting and distribution events.
  • To ensure CP student and staff safety, the sorting and distribution events will take place at the YMCA

We need more than a dozen volunteers to help sort and organize the the donations on November 20 and 21. Please sign up here.

 

If you are in need of winter clothing for your family, please note the distribution of winter clothing will take place on November 21, 2020 at the YMCA field, 59 Paul Robeson Place in Princeton.  

 

Thank you,

 

Elmé Schmid
