To honour Earth Day, the PAC partners with The Developmental Disabilities Association to host a clothing and houseware drive. This event helps to declutter homes and reduce our landfills, while raising funds for the school and for a good cause. ALL REVENUE generated by the Association from the drive goes to helping people with development disabilities.
