Giving Gators: Necessities Drive!

As we wind down yet another year, we often reflect on the things for which we are most fortunate. For some, housing, clothing, and food are the norm. For others, these items can be hard to come by. As a result, the Gorman Go-Getters (GCES’s AWESOME 5th grade leaders) are spearheading a drive for those in need. The drive will run from Wednesday, January 2nd – Friday, January 18th. Items we collect will be donated to various area shelters. We are collecting:

  • Diapers (various sizes)
  • Wipes
  • Deodorant (male and female)
  • Toothbrushes & Toothpaste
  • Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Ethnic Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Hair Brushes and Hair Ties
  • Hats & Scarves & Gloves
  • New OR Lightly used AND FRESHLY WASHED coats
  • New OR Lightly used AND FRESHLY WASHED infant/toddler clothes
  • New OR Lightly used AND FRESHLY WASHED kids clothes
  • New OR Lightly used AND FRESHLY WASHED and adult clothes


Please know, you do NOT have to donate any of the above. Also, as you clear out your own and your child’s winter clothes that no longer fit to make room for the new, feel free to donate them to this cause. However, if you already have your own hand-me-down system in place and cannot give, that is very much appreciated and we understand.

Your child (and/or you) can start bringing these items in when kids return from winter break January 2nd. I apologize we cannot take them sooner, but we are not currently set up to receive the items you may so generously donate.

Thank you in advance for your time and your kindness,
