Cleaning out your closets? Raise money for school with your gently used clothes!

Gardner Street Elementary is partnering with Schoola ( to raise funds for our school. Schoola collects pre-loved women's and children’s clothes, sells them online, and gives 40% of the proceeds (minus the cost of inbound shipping) back to Gardner Street Elementary to help fund programs for our students. Click to view our school's fundraising page to shop for clothes that benefit our school and view our fundraising progress. Don’t forget to donate your clean clothing in new or like-new condition from 12/5/2016-12/9/2016. For your convenience we’ll be collecting clothes in the Parent Center and at the car drop-off zones, but even if you miss the clothing drive, you may donate your clothes anytime by visiting the link to request a postage-paid donation bag.

We'll need a couple of helpers for about 30 minutes after drop off and pick up to help pack up clothes, click here to sign up by contact Andrew Miller at
