Are you emptying out your dressers for the spring season and finding clothes that you’ll never wear again? Junior Emma Friend is keeping a donation bin next to the main office that will accept clothing of any size. The donated clothing will be sent out to Cradles to Crayons, Big Brother Big Sister, and Red Cross. Make more room in your dressers while also helping people in need. Donations will be held now through May 24th. Let’s help save the world!
