Our PTA Wants To Help Refugees- Warm Clothing Drive

Oakman’s PTA is at it again! They are always helping those in need. There is an influx of refugees coming into our community  including some of our own students.

The PTA asks you for your gently used coats in adult and childrens’ sizes. They ask for boots as well as gloves, hats and scarves. They ask for sweaters and warm clothing too like pajamas, slippers and robes.  GENTLY USED means in good shape to wear during the entire season or more.

Please wash the items before you bring them in to Ms. Amged in the office and she will distribute accordingly. Thank you for your kindness to those less fortunate than we are.

Look at what our PTA can do!!!!
