ChildNet "Needs Drive" - 12/02/14 thru 12/04/14

The mission of ChildNet Youth and Family Services is to provide safe homes, education and counseling to vulnerable children and families. Foster care is one of their prominent services and they are in need of items to be able to give children who have been removed from their home (mostly with nothing but the clothes on their backs) to take to their foster home with them.

We will be collecting items to give to ChildNet on Tuesday, Dec. 2nd thru Thursday, Dec. 4th making it easy for parents to bring any donations and drop off since you will be on campus for parent/teacher conferences. A great time to clean out your child's closet of out-grown and unused items.

To find out more about them, visit

We will be collecting the following New & Used items:
  • Children's clothing & shoes - please make sure they are clean/good condition with no tears/stains.
