High school students can earn volunteer hours by helping Kidney Clothes Drive

Community Dec 06, 2017 Hamilton Mountain News

High school students can get 15 volunteer hours if they hold a clothing drive for The Kidney Foundation of Canada’s Frosty Friend program.

Hosting a Kidney Clothes Drive is easy, the organization says. Students spread the word that they are participating and ask people for donations of their unwanted clothing and cloth-based items — like outerwear, shoes and bedding — with the goal of collecting 30 large garbage bags worth of donations to receive their 15 volunteer hours.

“During this time of year there can be a lot of focus on spending money and excitement around receiving gifts,” says Julie Hunt, operations manager for Kidney Clothes in southwestern and south-central Ontario. “Kidney Clothes wants to remind students of the importance of helping others and giving back to their community. Hosting a Kidney Clothes Drive is a great, no-cost way of doing just that.”

The Frosty Friend program runs until March 1. Email Hunt at julie.hunt@kidneyclothes.ca.
