The Chaparral Elementary parent-teacher association is partnering with Clothes for the Cause for an event to raise money for their Accelerated Reading Program and class field trips.

Clothes for the Cause, a fundraising company, partners with fundraising groups to collect items that friends, family members and neighbors already have in their houses such as clothes, shoes, purses, belts and household linens. Clothes for the Cause then gives the group cash in exchange for the collected items.

You can drop off your donations to this clothing drive at: Chaparral Elementary School, located at 1155 North Deer Creek Lane, Meridian. They will be collecting donations between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. now through Jan. 22.

For more information, contact your local event planner, Angelina Ball, at (208) 571-4664, Facebook at Clothes for the Cause, Twitter @Clothes4_Cause, Instagram Clothes4_Cause or online at
