Toys For Teens – Claremont Edition

Thank you to everyone who brought in gift cards for teenagers to support our Toys For Teens drive; once again, the Claremont community has opened their Spartan hearts in an amazing way.  Together, over $2000 value in gifts cards was raised.  Mr Quested's block 1 class won the challenge, donating $345 in gift cards.  Mr Neufeld's class deserves special mention, too, coming in a very close second place.  The gift cards are being presented to the Zone 91.3 Toy Drive show this morning.

Warm Clothing Drive
Thank you so much to everyone who donated warm clothes to cold people: we are sending 6 huge bags of warm boots, jackets, scarves and hats to the Out of the Rain Youth Shelter. With this cold weather, those donations are much appreciated by less fortunate youth in the city.
