School Clothing Drive Helps Local Charity

Thank you to everyone who helped fill the clothing bins during our clothing drive – what a great way to help the Tucson community!

National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is leading this Big Brothers, Big Sisters (BBBS) clothing drive. We’ve had so many clothes donated, that BBBS came twice a week to pick up items.

Now that they drive is over,we have the final numbers on how much clothing was donated. Our TCDS community collected 1,805 pounds of clothes! Our school receives 20-cents per pound of clothing donated, which makes for $361 raised!20160428_161444

All funds raised during this clothing drive were donated to Youth on Their Own. NJHS members added to the $361 from the club’s account and presented a check for $500 to a Youth On Their Own representative who recently came to school during a middle school flag ceremony. She was very thankful and surprised.


Thank you again to our TCDS families for your generosity donating clothes for such a great cause. Thank you also to NJHS members for putting the drive together.
