Clothing Drive for Luis Munoz Marin Elementary

The FLECC PTA Service Committee has been made aware of a need for donations at Luis Munoz Marin Elementary School in Cleveland.  We are asking the students of Falls-Lenox to help these students in need by donating new or very gently used items to our monthly collection.  Luis Munoz Marin is a K-8 facility.  Each month our collection will focus on different items:

February: Shoes (grades 3-8 most in need) & Clothing

March: Shoes, Toiletries & RID (for treatment of lice)

April: Shoes, Warm Weather Clothing & Outerwear

May: Shoes & Clothing

NOTE: Donations of gift cards to Wal-Mart, Target, etc. are also welcome to help purchase personal items and undergarments for the students at the school.

A box to collect donated items will be in the front lobby of the school.  Donations of gift cards should be sent directly to your child’s teacher who will then forward them on to Mrs. Richmond-Smith.

We would like to thank the Falls-Lenox and ECC families in advance for their kindness and generosity.  We are always grateful for the donations we receive with each project we undertake.  We would also like to thank Mrs. Richmond-Smith and her 3rd grade class for helping the Service Committee to organize and advertise our collection.

Thank you,
FLECC PTA Service Committee
