The City of York-Bureau of Health in partnership with the York City School nurses, are sponsoring a SOCKS & SWEATS Drive for the month of February.
Children’s socks and sweatpants (because they can be unisex) are needed to provide dry clothing for those who are walkers and become wet from the elements, suffer accidents in school, or come to school without proper attire for the weather. Currently these items, and other clothing, are provided by individual contributions of school nurses. Support of their efforts will enable them to continue to help students in need which only continue to grow as supplies are seriously depleted.
The greatest needs are for the elementary age children, but all sizes will help.
Donations can be dropped off at the City of York – Bureau of Health Clinic located at 435 W. Philadelphia St. anytime Monday – Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., now through February 28th.
For alternative pick up arrangements or questions, please contact Kim Wentz, RN at the clinic. 717-849-2299.
