Health Office Needs donation

The Richardson Health Office is in need of girls/boys clothes that are used for students who may need a change throughout the day.

The items needed are:

Girls underware size 6 and up

Girls socks - all sizes

Girls leggings/sweats - they are the easiest to get on/off. Size 6 and up. Black is the best as it will match anything

Girls tops - long sleeves for now. Size 6 and up

Boys underware size 6 and up

Boys socks - all sizes

Boys sweatpants size 12 and up. Again Black is great but they are not quite as fussy

Boys shirts size 8 and up - short or long sleeve

I would be very appreciative of any donations.

Thank you,

Nurse Konnie
