The Winter Clothing Drive Starts on Wednesday!

Our annual winter clothing drive starts this Wednesday!

Bag2School will accept ALL textiles in any condition to be resold, reused or recycled.  You can donate any clothes or textiles, but if you have any items that are still in great condition, you can also participate in a clothing swap to be held on two evenings – Wednesday November 28 and Tuesday December 4 – in the Hodgson Cafeteria at 282 Davisville.  Please mark these bags with “for swap” plus sizes of clothes ( ex “boy-11, girl -5/6”) to make it easier for our volunteers.  Items that are particularly needed are winter clothes, jackets, snow pants and boots, but the swap will have clothes from baby to adult sizes.

We also have a friendly competition to see which class can bring in the most donations by weight!  Each Davisville class is partnered with a class at Hodgson.  Donations are to be dropped off in the class team space (teams have squares painted on the floor labeled by class teams) at the Hodgson front entrance. To get credit for the swap, please indicate your name and number of bags donated when you drop off your donation.  All donors will get an upcycled t-shirt bag to fill for free or you can buy and fill a bag for $15.

Any donations that are not used will be given to Bag2School, including clothes, shoes (tied together please), purses, bags, bedding, towels and stuffed animals.  Everything is resold, repurchased or recycled for furniture stuffing.

To volunteer, please contact coordinator Tanya Murdoch at or use this online sign up link:  Clothing Drive Sign-Up,
