MLK Toiletries for Teens Drive
The Martin Luther King Toiletries for Teen Drive 2016 was a huge success, thanks to the Evergreen School District Foundation (ESDF) Pantry Project, the City of Vancouver, Kaiser Permanente, Bridge Chiropractic and the many parent, student and community volunteers who sorted more than 2,200 items collected at City Hall.
Items were collected throughout Clark County area city offices, Clark County Police and Fire departments, and recreation sites including Firstenburg Community Center. Elementary school students from across district decorated approximately 30 collection boxes with original artwork for the effort.
More than 1,500 students among the district’s six high schools received much needed items including laundry detergent, shampoo, conditioner, soap, body wash, toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, feminine hygiene, deodorant, lotion, gloves, socks and toilet paper.
