Giving Back to Our Community
In 2012 we were meeting with other EdCamp planners to plan a ConnectED room. Our friends at EdCampNJ (New Jersey) talked about how they were collecting school supplies for students affected by Hurricane Sandy. Since we were just a few days away from EdCampMSP we could not have planned a philanthropy campaign quick enough. We put it on the list of one of the things we were going to do for future EdCampMSPs. Since its inception at EdCampMSP 2013 and subsequent events we have collected nearly 100 coats for kids.
So at EdCampMSP this year, we are again partnering with our friends at Pilgrim Cleaners and joining the Coats for Kids Drive. All you need to do is bring your new or gently used coats, mittens, hats, scarves, boots, and snow pants to EdCamp. We will get them over to Pilgrim Cleaners, who will get them cleaned and give them to families in need.
