Our final Eco-Week initiative is 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. A year and a half ago, the Eco-Committee ran a donation campaign for Rock Trust and we collected 94 kilos of donations! Let's see if we can top that this year!
We're collecting donations of clean clothes in good condition (ages 16-25/sizes 8-16) from March 11 to 22 - 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 from March 11-22. We look forward to seeing the Knox community come together for another good cause!
