Visit me at That Yank In... and Traveling with That Yank
All of the other schools in the area are doing this but I haven't heard anything about it from my kids. They have been especially bad about passing on papers to me lately, though, so maybe we missed it.
Our schools all do something like that, but it's more simple in middle and high school since they have more than just a homeroom teacher. At the elementary school one teacher always does a coat drive and one year one of the room mom's asked each child to bring a new pair of gloves (you can get 2 pairs at the $1 store) to the holiday party, and they were donated to a local place. I thought that was a great idea, every child deserves warm gloves.
My dad volunteers a lot for a local place that provides all kinds of things at no cost like clothing, food, small appliances, school supplies, books, bedding, toys, etc. They have been running REALLY low this whole last year or two. We did a remodel this summer and downsized a LOT. Our family pretty much filled up all the clothing and shoes, which is sad.
We have a lot more stuff I have collected I need to get there. Most of the places like that are really hit hard, much harder, than they have ever been.

I have no idea if my nephew's school is doing that. It doesn't work that way here.
