A truckload of used clothing and other items is headed to needy families thanks to the generosity of the Tackan Elementary School community.
Students in Bill Schroeder’s fifth grade class helped load nearly 300 bags of recently collected clothing, car seats, bedding, stuffed animals and small toys on Tuesday, Jan. 11. The truck filled with donated items was bound for a New Jersey distribution hub that will share it domestically and internationally with those in need.
Organized by the Tackan Elementary PTA, the generosity also will benefit the school’s cultural arts program. Once the contents arrive at the charity’s distribution hub and the truck pulls onto a scale, the program will receive a cash donation based on the weight.
