Durham’s Recycling Club and PTO are partners in the Urge to Purge Clothing Drive going on now through the end of April.
Durham is one of two CISD campuses that have a World Wear bin. World Wear collects clothing, blankets, sheets, backpacks, coats and shoes and ships them to third world countries. What cannot be salvaged is turned into industrial rags.
“It’s a great way to help others and keep items out of our landfills,” said Durham Humanities Teacher, Fran Lowen.
On Tuesday, April 14, to inspire global awareness of the needs of others, Durham students and staff were encouraged to donate shoes and go shoeless for the day.
If you would like to help Durham’s PTO and Recycling Club earn 12 cents for each pound collected, you can drop off your items in the World Wear bin behind the school.
