As we begin our descent into the holiday season, the decorations come up, the travel plans are made, and the Black Friday shopping itinerary is developed. The everyday hustle and bustle of life is compounded with holiday plans, gift checklists, work get-togethers, and figuring out if you or one of your siblings is going to host one of the holidays this year. Fingers are crossed you stepped up to the plate last year and are unbound this fall and winter.
For Educators of America, the holiday season is a time where all hands are on deck. From Giving Tuesday to Fundraising Events to organizing our Educator of the Year event, not a moment’s time is wasted. But we wanted to take a brief instance to acknowledge the Clothing Collection Drive that will begin on Monday, November 19th and end on December 17.
The Clothing Collection Drive is an integral part of supporting Educators of America’s Building Hope project. The Building Hope project is our mission to provide support, capacity building workshops, and resources to a school in an awfully deserving community within Namibia. The community and school have identified their areas of need and by partnering with the local school, Educators of America are able to assist and work together with teachers, staff, and community members to develop long-term and sustainable solutions to the challenges they face.
Educators of America believes that the power of high quality education can uplift a community, a region, and a nation. It can bring hope. It can bring prosperity. It can positively change lives for generations.
Contribute to building hope, changing lives, and improving the chance of prosperity for students by participating in the Educators of America Clothing Collection Drive from Nov. 19 – Dec. 17.
We will be accepting gently-used clothing, linens, jewelry, shoes, and accessories such as belts, purses, and scarves.
So, when you’re rummaging through the closet, attic, or crawlspace trying to find those pesky ornaments, tree lights or table runner, and stumble upon your seasonal clothes that you keep telling yourself you’re going to donate, remember, Educators of America Clothing Collection Drive.
Thank you in advance for your donation and please contact us today for details on clothing pick up/drop off.
