Look for The Big Blue Bin

As summer makes its switch to fall, Oakbrook Elementary families are asking residents to keep them in mind as they switch out their warm weather garbs for sweaters and boots.

From September 15th through the 29th, Oakbrook Elementary PTA is hosting a clothing drive fundraiser to collect used clothing, shoes, accessories, and other cloth items to raise money for their students.

Working in partnership with local non-profit Northwest Center, the Oakbrook PTA is asking the community to collect items they are no longer in need of and bring them to the school for donation.

A collection bin for the items is located in the parking lot near the parent drop-off to allow 24-hour access for residents to leave donations.
