Dear students and families,
MacNeill School is collecting donations of clothing and small household items in order to help those members of our Regina community who have lost their homes to fires this past week.
Items that are needed by families include:
Clothing – all sizes, all styles. Infants, children, teen, adult. Warm clothes will be most important, right now.
Toiletry items – toothbrushes, combs, soap, etc.
Household items- dishes, pots and pans, towels, bedding, etc.
All items (and any medium-large boxes in which to transport our donations) will be accepted at our MacNeill School Resource Center, where we will organize it. We will then transport it to organizations that will then ensure that each item gets to the families impacted by the fires that need it most.
Any monetary donations you might wish to make can be made directly to the Canadian Red Cross (who have been supporting those made homeless by the fire by paying for hotel and food for them until they can move into a new place), or to the Salvation Army Haven of Hope (who will provide gift cards/vouchers for furniture, clothing, and groceries).
Please consider donating what you can. We will accept donations of clothing, toiletries, and household items until Monday, January 19. If you have any questions, please phone the school or email Mrs. Brewer: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank-you for helping us show Regina that MacNeill School “does the best it can do” at supporting those in need!
