Bag 2 School

Doing some spring cleaning? Do you have clothing that is outgrown, old, stained, ripped or no longer needed? Don’t throw it out in the garbage! Put it in a bag and send it to school with your child.

Throughout the month of April, in honour of Earth Month, Bowmore will be holding a clothing drive.

We will have a drop off zone on Thursday April 26 and Friday April 27 from 8-9 in the front foyer of the school for the bag 2 school campaign. 

Through the Bag 2 School program, Bowmore will be collecting any unwanted textiles, in order to keep them out of the landfills. Bag 2 School will pick up our textiles on April 27th, and they will be donated or recycled. They will also pay us for our collected textiles, so the more we collect, the more money we will raise for Bowmore!

What items can be donated?

clothing footwear (tied together) towels
backpacks outerwear scarves
soft bags purses/handbags hats
belts linens

Please send any unwanted clothing in a bag, and have your child drop them off in their classroom.

Thank you for helping us keep our planet clean!
