Kindness Tree

The holidays are just around the corner! This year, the Student Services Team is going to have a Clothing Drive to help support Note in the Pocket. Note in the Pocket is a non-profit agency that partners with Wake County Schools to provide free clothing to students in need. Because their inventory is solely based on donations, they are especially in need during the holiday season as a high number of referrals come to them. What a better way to give back to, not only our students, but all Wake County students than to help support this amazing agency?!

Bryan Road will have a holiday tree set up in the front foyer for donations to be put under. The Clothing Drive will run from Monday, November 26th through Thursday, December 6th. Some items may be kept at Bryan Road in case of student emergencies such as accidents, nose bleeds, etc.

The Clothing Drive is for any gender and all ages, as Note in the Pocket provides clothing to, not only students, but their families as well.

Please help your Bryan Road Student Services Team get in the holiday spirit by donating clothing this holiday season!

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library
