Altara's Super Service Project

Let’s show our Altara Superhero Spirit! 
We are collecting new and gently used clothing for a couple of other elementary schools in our area that need help providing these basic necessities for their students. 

Any new or gently used clothing item for girls and boys K - 5th grade is greatly appreciated but they especially are in need of: Pants, Sweats or leggings, Hats, Stretchy gloves, Shoes, Underwear (new in package), and Socks (new in package). 

Please bring items the week of March 5th - 9th. We have an amazing school community! Thanks for your support!!
