Warm Clothing Drive

In recent years, St George’s has supported the International Student Counseling Office (ISCO) of the Prince George’s County School System by collecting warm clothing for newly arrived immigrant and refugee children who do not have clothing appropriate for our winter weather. The ISCO reports that they are experiencing a large increase in newly arrived children this year, as well as many transfer students, so we are again asking for donations of coats and jackets, new or gently used and clean, as well as hats, scarves, and gloves. The ISCO would particularly appreciate coats and jackets for middle school and high school age children (up through adult size medium), but they are grateful for items for younger children as well. Donations should be placed in the bin in the narthex. The ISCO would also welcome Target gift cards which they can use to purchase other items students need, such as boots, socks, and uniforms; gift cards should be given to Randy or Donna Haselton. This year’s drive will run throughout November. Thank you for helping us support these children!
