CBES Students Hold Winter Clothing Drive

 

5th grade student Kloie Duggan recently held a Winter Clothing drive for locals in need. She made the proposal to the School’s Principal Ms. Wartel who gave her the go ahead under the direction of Ms. Saunders. Kloie came up with the idea after being inspired by her Grandmother who always helps others and her Church Haven Ministries. Kloie headed the drive and enlisted fellow students Steven, Grace, Kevin and Bronson who were all just as serious about the cause as she was. Together they collected gently used and new blankets, coats, pants, boots, gloves, socks and more. With donations from staff and students the group collected two bins full of winter clothing and donated to Carolina Beach’s Island Cottage that helps those in need on Pleasure Island. Kloie is a very driven young lady, she is the Captain of her cheer team and in the future she wants to open a Thrift Store for the homeless and those in need.
