The Gift of Warmth

In January, the Builders Club will be holding our 5th Annual “Give the Gift of Warmth” Winter Clothing Drive. We will be collecting gently-used winter-wear, such as coats, hats and mittens, for the students of the Wilson Foundation Academy. Wilson Foundation has scholars from Preschool through 8th grade, so all sizes are welcome! Please just make sure that the items are clean and bagged before you bring them in. Last year, thanks to your generous donations, we collected 30 winter coats and over 150 other warm clothing items, all of which Wilson Foundation distributed to their students in need. This year they are in special need of red and black sweatshirts or fleeces. This is part of the uniform—the building is very cold and many scholars do not have appropriate clothing for the colder weather. So over the holiday break, if you discover that your children have outgrown their winter gear, please consider donating it to our clothing drive, and give the gift of warmth! If you have any questions, please contact Amy Feller at afeller@bkhs.org.
