Clothing Drive Benefits Elementary Students

Our UConnect Elementary children collected donations of clothing for a local elementary school. They delivered 54 pairs of new pants, 63 pairs of mittens, plus belts, hats and tops.

The school counselor sent this report:

I wanted to share something that just happened. I had a 3rd grader who came to school with a very large hole in the seat of his pants.  He’s been unable to move comfortably all morning because he’s been trying to hold them together.  Previously we would have had to sift through what we had and try on multiple pairs to find the best fit since we didn’t have many sizes.  Students could miss 15-20 minutes of class time! Because of your church’s super organized donation I was able to get him to the closet, find new pants, change, and get back to class very quickly. He lost less than 5 minutes of instructional time! Not only did you all help him feel better and move more comfortably around class but also prevented him from missing instruction!  We cannot thank you enough!
