Clothing Drive for the Less Fortunate

For the second year in a row, the Grade 5 class at Rama Central P.S. organized a winter clothing drive for the less fortunate.  Our drive ran from mid-November until December 20th. Afterwards, we sorted and bagged all of the clothes, for delivery to a local shelter.

Then, Mrs. Black and Ms. Lyons drove the bags of clothes to "Green Again," the store operated by Greenhaven Women's Shelter, in Orillia. This is Green Again volunteer (and retired Rama Central french teacher!) Erin Price, with some of our donations.

    Dear Students of Rama Central and Mrs. Black
    What an undertaking you have embraced and at such a busy time of year!
    I miss being at Rama Central, especially the wonderful sense of Community Spirit that you all have.
    I can assure you that I will be working very hard to distribute the items (that you have collected and sent in), to the many people that need them.
    Have a completely wonderful well- deserved holiday and all the best for a promising New Year! MERCI! Mme Price
