Staff and students at the school donated clothing, toys, shoes, beds, sheets and more that they were able to part with but that others in the community may want or need. The items were sorted on tables in the school’s parking lot to allow neighbors to “shop” through the items. The students sorted the donations, set up the tables and volunteered at the event. School staff members accompanied the students.

Members of the community started lining up down the street an hour before March Gladness opened. Students had shared news about the event through social media, by notifying other nonprofit organizations, and walking throughout the nearby streets spreading the word to the surrounding neighborhood.
