MS Students will be Gardening in the Winter

Middle schools students will be collecting winter items such as gloves, mittens, hats, and scarves to distribute around Frederick for those in need.

Coats (of all sizes) will also be collected and donated.

There will be collection bags and boxes outside of each classroom starting on Tuesday.

Please consider donating items for their 'garden'; items that will be placed at specific locations downtown need to be adult sizes. Very gently used items are acceptable.

This work is inspired by Blessings in a Backpack's work to take care of those in need in our area and other random acts of kindness.
