The awesome students from Siena Elementary are at it again! The kids from Meridian, Idaho decided to do a second Clothing Drive Fundraiser with Clothes for the Cause after having so much success with the first one. Last year, all of the money they raised went towards “Coats for Kids”. This time, they decided to again donate 100 percent of their profits to the community. This time, they picked the “Weekend Backpack Program” as their charity. It’s a program that gives backpacks of food to send home with students over the weekend who may go hungry without it. They wanted to raise $300 with their Clothing drive fundraiser.
Students, teachers and the PTO all came together to make it work. On November 6 they collected all of their bags and were able to gather 1560 pounds of clothes. Another great example of kids being active in their community!
