Henderson Bay High School students were able to find new clothes for school and fun at a pop-up shop in their building, created by leadership student Maxx C.
As a part of his leadership class, Maxx C. chose to do a clothing drive for a part of a school project called 20 Time, where students are given one day a week to focus on a real-life solution to a real-life problem. He chose to help those who can’t afford to purchase new clothes regularly by hosting a clothing drive and then donate the items to the community. His drive was so successful, he had enough product for a small boutique.
“He and I decided that before donating in the community, we’d take the donations and do a pop-up shop for HBHS students to ‘shop,’” Leadership teacher Emily Scheutzow said. “He and I spent all of last week sorting and setting up.”
Students enjoyed shopping for the donated clothes, and anything left will be donated to those in need. What an innovative way to help your community!
