Good morning Royal Oak and welcome to the final day of the Cool Aid Warm Clothing Drive. Yesterday, Grade 8 leadership students collected clothing items from classrooms again and were impressed to see the warm jackets, hats, winter shoes/boots pour in for yet another day. A great effort so far to filling the need for warm clothing around the Victoria community. After day 4, we have a pretty close race between the Green floor and Blue floor for number of warm clothing items donated. The current score is 217 items for the Green Floor, and an whopping 266 items for the Blue Floor. However, we still have the last day to include, so stay tuned for the final results of the 2014 Royal Oak Warm Clothing Drive!
