Good morning Royal Oak and welcome to day four of the Cool Aid Warm Clothing Drive. Yesterday, grade 8 leadership students collected clothing items from classrooms and were impressed to see the warm jackets, hats, winter shoes/boots pour in for another day. A great effort so far to filling the need for warm clothing around the Victoria community. After day 3, the Green Floor has roared back, closing the gap for number of warm clothing items donated. The current score is 158 items for the Green Floor, and an staggering 181 items for the Blue Floor. The competition is heating up and we still have 2 days to go. So talk to your friends and family members about this fundraiser, and let's continue to make a huge positive impact on our community Royal Oak!
