  •  Need for Donations

Hello everyone!

Firstly, we would like to once again thank the community for your support in our fundraisers, donations drives and the quiz night which took place a few weeks ago now. Your support is much appreciated by us and by our partners at Sanagitachi. Your involvement is always welcome, and if you would like to join us on our Thursday night patrols around Yokohama stadium and Kannai station (every two weeks), please let us know in advance by emailing me (Erin, Grade 11) or Mr. Hauet. This invitation is open to students, teachers and parents!

We recently had a Grade 10 student, Noah, contact us about the need for donations and rightfully stated that, with summer fast approaching, the homeless community are in need of “lighter” clothing such as t-shirts, (non-thermal) underwear and pants, as opposed to warm, winter clothing that we received a lot of during the colder months. In addition to this, donations such as toothbrushes, razors, soap and small towels are essential to satisfy their hygienic needs. Please, if you have of these items to spare, bring them into Mr. Hauet’s room in M202.

Thank you! (Erin)
