I Give a Shirt Challenge – Begins Monday, April 24

posted in: Home Page News | 0

DGH community, the CHALLENGE is on!  Ms. Cayley and the Student Council team have organized a “I Give a Shirt Challenge!”


DGH will be celebrating and raising awareness around Earth Day, which is April 22, 2017. You have an opportunity to make a difference in our community, through our campaign, “I Give a Shirt”, introduced by the Recycling Council of Ontario. To help save our environment and reduce the amount of clothing and textile waste that ends up in our landfills, we will be holding a clothing drive for clean, gently used clothing, During the week of April 24-28, please drop off bags of clothing at our school. This clothing will be donated to the Diabetes Association. Let’s see how many textiles we can save from landfills!


Why is this such a great activity?


• Others benefit from the shirts that are donated.  If you have outgrown a favourite shirt, donating it so that others can use it is a wonderful thing!


• It keeps clothing out of the local landfill.  Each year an incredible amount of useable clothing goes into landfills.  Passing clothing onto others benefits the environment!
