Lafayette Gives Back is running its annual coat drive through Thanksgiving week to support our sister school, Takoma Education Campus.
On the first day (which was only announced over Facebook), we collected 20 coats, which were then delivered to TEC the very next day for distribution. Each coat was worn home by a child who had arrived at school without one, so thanks again to Lafayette families for the early donations!
If you’d like to donate in the coming weeks, you can put coats, warm hoodies, gloves, hats and scarves in the marked bins across from Officer V’s desk in the school entrance way. Please wash coats before bringing them to school, and please only bring coats in dignity condition (no rips, no stains, and nothing you wouldn’t put on your own kid). Please reach out to with any questions.
