Our Own Boys’ Sharjah witnessed yet another display of the empathetic and solicitous side of its students and teachers when the Student Council initiated its second edition of the “Clothes for Compassion” collection drive from the 9th of December up to the 13th of December.
As we come to the end of every year people tend to dispose of their well kept or unused clothes. But recognizing the pressing need to help those in need to cover themselves during the winter, this collection drive was initiated.
The response that we got is truly a representation of the compassionate culture that we foster in our community. At the end of the drive we were pleased to have collected an impressive total of 888 kg of used and unused clothes that was then given to the Emirates Red Crescent.
