District Two: Homelessness, Gentrification, and Housing
Not Your Average Army is a high school chapter in Providence, RI. For our first project, we ran a winter clothing drive.
We ran the drive for a month, with themes like Coats for Hagrid or Socks for Dobby. We encouraged any and all winter wear donations. In the end, we had collected four pairs of shoes (including boots and sneakers) and four bags full of clothing. All of the donations were brought to the St. John the Baptist, a church in Pawtucket, RI, where the donations will go on to serve the less fortunate in that area.
For our next project, we hosted a Penny War, with the funds helping us out in our next endeavor — Fans for Change.
