The Line Mountain School District has partnered with CommunityAid of Selinsgrove, PA to become a clothing collection bin partner. The district currently has two bins for collections; one is located near the main entrance to the Elementary School in Trevorton, and one is located behind the High School in the rear parking lot. The clothing collected will be sold in CommunityAid Thrift Stores in central Pennsylvania. Visit them at: www.communityaid.com The money and gift cards that the district receives through this partnership will go towards our Needy Family Fund. The staff at Line Mountain participates in a dress down day once per month with proceeds going to the same Needy Family Fund. The Fund is used to purchase Christmas gifts for needy students and their siblings along with food items during the holidays.
The Line Mt. SD would very much appreciate any help from the community by dropping off your new or gently used clothing at our collection bins. Please remember all proceeds help students and their families throughout our district in their time of need.
Thank You from the Line Mountain School District.
