Bag2School: Clothing Donation Drive

Did you know that the average North American discards over 65 pounds of clothing and textiles each year? Extending the average life of clothes by just 3 months of active use would lead to a 5-10% reduction in each of their carbon, water and waste footprints.  That is why we are pleased to announce that Essex-Hawthorne has teamed up with Bag2School for our next fundraiser.  Bag2School is a textile recycling company that takes back unwanted, wearable and unwearable textiles to be reused or refurbished into new textiles and materials. Monies raised will go toward new books for the Early Reading Club.
By getting involved in our Bag2School collection, you have an opportunity to sort through your closets and donate unwanted textiles including clean adults’ and children’s clothes, shoes (tied together please), hats, belts, handbags, drapes, linens and soft toys. Don’t forget to ask grandparents, friends and neighbours to give you their unwanted clothes as well!

Bag2School donations can be dropped off at school in garbage bags between Thursday Nov. 16th and Monday Nov. 20th.  The drop off spot will be the small “Guidance Room” in the Essex Primary hallway (look for signs in the front foyer to guide you there). Please note, no donations will be accepted after November 20th.

More information can be found at Bag2School.ca and any questions can be directed to jessica.haber@tdsb.on.ca.  Many thanks for helping us with this unique fundraising opportunity.
