Knock The Socks Off Male!

The Red/White Week annual collection challenge between Manual and Male has begun! We are collecting NEW SOCKS for the JCPS 15th District PTA Clothing Assistance Program (CAP). All sizes and styles of socks from infant to adult sizes are needed. Young children and adolescent/adult sized no-show style socks are especially needed.

Please place new sock donations in specially marked boxes located at entrances to the main building, YPAS and YPAS annex. Good Clothes Good People will also have bins (marked ‘CAP’) to collect socks at certain entrances. CAP has been providing new and gently used clothing to JCPS children in need for over 40 years, with a mission to reduce absenteeism by ensuring that students have appropriate school clothing. The program is run almost solely by volunteers, who sort, tag and hang clothes throughout the year. Our next Manual service date is 11/21 but volunteers are always needed; contact our CAP Chairs for more info.

Send socks in from now until Game Day on Friday, Oct. 20. Let’s knock the socks off Male!

Red/White Week Collection Challenge #BeatMale

pulltabhearts

The annual collection challenge with Male is in full swing as we lead into Red/White week activities. We are collecting soda can pull tabs to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kentuckiana.

Their mission is to provide a “home away from home” for families whose children are being treated in local area hospitals. Please save pull tabs and bring them to school in clear plastic baggies and place donations in the boxes found at Manual or YPAS entrances. Also, students and teachers can place individual tabs in the small replicas of Ronald McDonald Houses found near all aluminum & bottle recycling bins. The tabs will be weighed and the amount received will be announced at the game on October 21
