Blog: Clothing drive for victims of hurricane Sandy

The Roots & Shoots club at Capri Elementary is collecting scarves, socks, hats and mittens to send to the east coast.


Capri Elementary students are collecting cold weather clothing to send to victims of Hurricane Sandy.  The Roots & Shoots service learning club, made up of students from kindergarten through 6th grade, voted to make helping hurricane victims one of their three projects this school year.

The Encinitas community is invited to bring new or used scarves, socks, hats and mittens/gloves to the Capri office by December 13.  Capri is located at 941 Capri Road Encinitas, CA 92024.

Capri has had a Roots & Shoots group for four years.  Each year the club supports three projects; one each for animals, humans, and the environment.  In the past they have worked with the San Elijo Lagoon, a women’s shelter, beach cleanups and the Humane Society.

Roots & Shoots is a world-wide program developed by Jane Goodall.  According to their website over 4,265,671 people have been served through Roots & Shoots projects.  More information can be found here.

thank you, Capri Elementary! Many hurricane victims out here in the New York/New Jersey area are still very cold, without heat, suffering. They will be benefit from this donation and gratified to know that you cared enough to organize this clothing drive. Keep up the good work! -- Sandy Jordan, former Encinitas resident
