Nurses office needs clothing!

As you clean out drawers and closets, please keep in mind that Edgelea is in need of children's clothing including: boys and girls sweat pants, jeans, and shorts, socks, new underwear, and t-shirts. As parents you know what kind of messes children can make. We often have to send children to the nurse for clean clothing for the day.
