On now until January 15th, CEFA (Core Education & Fine Arts) schools will be accepting clothing to be donated to the YWCA’s Crabtree Corner as a part of the CEFA Clothes for Kids Drive.
Crabtree Corner is a transition house in the Downtown East Side that specializes in helping single mothers in transition and their families. CEFA will be collecting clothing for these women and their children of all ages (babies to youth).
The donated clothing does not get re-sold either. It is cleaned and given to those in need along with a personalized note from CEFA’s junior kindergarten class (ages 1-5) to reinforce the lessons they have learned about caring and sharing.
You can drop off your clothing donations at any CEFA school in the region, from West Vancouver to White Rock. In Vancouver you can stop by their head office at 2946 Commercial Drive, which is the future site of their latest school, opening in 2010.
You can read the CEFA blog for updates (or follow @CEFAKids on Twitter) and I believe they’re at 92 items donated so far. Hopefully we can give them a bit of a boost to support the YWCA’s Crabtree Corner.
