The Summit Lakes Middle School PTA collected 1,478 pounds of new and gently used clothing to help students in need. The clothing, which was collected during October parent-teacher conferences, went to Just One, an organization designed to support the needs of Lee’s Summit R-7 students.

Families were asked to donate fall and winter clothing with an emphasis on items that would fit a middle-school age child. Other clothing items were also accepted.

SLMS grade-level teams competed during the clothing drive with the winning team from each grade level earning an ice cream celebration. Winning teams were the 7 Falcon and 8 Blue.

"I think the clothing drive was amazing,” said Nick Harris. “We had so many more clothes than expected -- it wouldn't even all fit into one car.  And the best part was my team won."
