Message from Bigelow Student Leaders – Clothing Drive

Imagine not being able to provide winter clothes for your children. For thousands of families this is a challenging reality. Cradles to Crayons hopes to support the 40,000 children who need help to stay warm this winter.

As part of the teen leadership program, three Bigelow students are organizing a clothing drive at Bigelow to help Cradles to Crayons reach their goal.  Please have your child bring in any winter items in good condition you no longer need.  

When:   From November 28th through December 11th.
Where:  There is a box outside the main office.

Thank you for your support!
