Comox students collecting clothes for the homeless

Highland Secondary School 2013 grads will help keep the Comox Valley's homeless warm with a winter clothing drive.

The project is part of a Grad Legacy project, called 13 Projects to Inspire, and the school is looking for community donations of warm winter wear until Jan. 24.

Donations of clean, (laundered), winter clothes, shoes, jackets and blankets for men, women and children can be dropped off at the school. A large box is located by the front office for donations during school hours.

The items will be distributed through the Foursquare Church.

The clothing drive initiative is the second of the 13 projects; grads collected toys for Santa's Workshop late last year for the first project.

Highland school is located at 750 Pritchard Rd. in Comox.
