Recently the Sixth-Grade, Core 2, Language Arts class on Team Storm at Van Wert Middle School conducted a clothing drive to donate slightly used clothing to the Van Wert Goodwill. During their campaign, the students collected close to 800 pounds of clothing.
The clothing drive was in conjunction with the Language Arts Genius Project which allows students the freedom to learn about topics that are of interest to them. This project was one of three that are currently taking place this trimester. Other projects that are being conducted include a fundraiser for the American Red Cross and a Dog & Cat Food Drive for the Van Wert County Humane Society.
