The WCHS Interact club is partnering with Streets Alive to deliver the Stuff-A- Bag event (a clothing and needed item drive). Students will stuff a bag, like an average grocery bag, with clothing and needed items. We do have bags that Streets Alive has provided us with which can be handed out to students; however, we won't be able to distribute the bags until a later date. A list is below with some examples of what to put in a bag.
Once a bag is stuffed students are to bring it to their first period class, and members of Interact will collect the bags students have brought in during grade 11 break.
Our last day to bring in bags is set for November 26th; however, this may change. On the end date the bags will be taken to Streets Alive here in Lethbridge, and they will then distribute the bags to Lethbridge's homeless population. AHS health and safety guidelines will be followed when handling and dropping off the bags.
This of course is open to staff as well. It will be a great opportunity to donate some items you no longer need or want without going through the trouble of driving to a donation drop off center. You also get the peace of mind knowing your items are directly going to those in need and will not be wasted.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to one of the Interact student members.
