Planet Aid Clothing Donation Update

Thanks for your donations and your support. Planet Aid pays WLMS by the pound and all that money goes to our school activities, PBIS, etc. We often receive inquiries about how we can help students and families in need with various school expenses or handling a crisis situation like a house fire. Dropping off clothing donations to the Planetaid bin is a great way to help out.
