The bags of clothing were given to the Canadian Diabetes Association. From each bag of clothing, $3 will go to the school, where it will then be given to the SPCA and Critteraid.

The schools in Summerland collected a total of 204 bags of clothing, to raise $612.

“We thought it would be a good way to recycle clothing,” said Katie Becker, a Grade 11 student at the high school. “It’s a good way for the community to pitch in.”
