Help Support CCRT’s Pontiac School Project now through August 11
For the past 6 years, CCRT has assisted hundreds of children in Pontiac Schools by providing gently used school uniforms in good condition. The donations have come from our Vicariate schools but many of those schools now have crests on their shirts which diminishes our supply to Pontiac students in need.
If you are considering a donation of school supplies to students this year, please also think about adding a new uniform shirt or pair of pants to your list while shopping at Target, Meijer, Walmart, Old Navy or Amazon.com. We are in need of sizes 6 and up in children’s sizes for both boys and girls plus larger teen/adult sizes. The Pontiac Board of Education Policy Manual, https://pontiac.k12.mi.us, specifies the following guidelines: solid black, khaki or navy blue dress pants or slacks, dresses, jumpers or skirts with solid white, navy blue or light blue long or short sleeve collared shirts. We will be collecting clothing through August 11, 2019.
If you would like to contribute, please bring your items to church and place them in the labeled barrels in the gathering space. Please also clearly identify them as “school uniforms for CCRT.” If you prefer to donate money for uniforms, please drop check in the box in the SJF office. Please make checks payable to Catholic Community Response Team and write “school uniforms” on the memo line. If you have any questions, please contact Janet Remington at (248) 375-3217.
Thank you for your generous support.
