For the 3rd year in a row, the Eco-Committee is running a clothing collection for Rock Trust, a charitable organisation that works with young people aged 16 to 25 who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Rock Trust provides useful services like one-to-one support, group programmes, employability training, and volunteering/work experience opportunities. To help young people, Rock Trust also provides supplies like clothing.

We're collecting donations of clean clothes in good condition (ages 16-25/sizes 8-20) from March 9 to 20 - that's two whole weeks! And this comes at a great time because you might be doing some spring cleaning at home and realize that in the depths of your closet, you have a lot of clothes you rarely wear! Rather than send those clothes to landfill, let's put them toward a good cause! Clothing donations can be brought to Miss Laudi's room. We look forward to seeing the Knox community come together for another good cause!
