Last year the Diversity Martial Arts Association donated a great deal of used clothing to HOLT Elementary School in Durham. HOLT Elementary was chosen because of the high percentage of children living in poverty at that school.

We had the participation of about 8 dojos and in turn received a wonderful letter from the Principal.  She was completely blown away as every table in their cafeteria was filled with clothes for the kids ranging from socks to jackets.

The need is even greater this year.  Please set aside clean used clothing items and start bringing them to class.  The deadline for the donation is mid December and we will make the presentation to HOLT Elementary on December 18th.

I want to say thanks again to Winslow Thornton who made a huge contribution last year.

Thanks in advance for your help.
