LAST CLOTHING DRIVE OF THE YEAR! 
We invite you to clean out your closets and deposit unwanted clothing, towels, purses, shoes, belts, etc. into the USAgain green and white collection bins at school.  We are running a special drive that will end on June 15th where OPUSD will receive over TRIPLE the amount for this brief collection period.  These items will be reused or recycled and most importantly, they will be kept out of the landfill, where more than 80% of clothing and textiles end up.  Producing clothing is one of the most carbon-intensive industries, so ensuring it has as long a life as possible or is recycled helps with greenhouse gas reduction.

So, before you enjoy your summer vacation - go through your family closets and bring in a bag of stuff. 
The Environmental Education and Awareness Committee (EEAC) thanks you for your continued support.
