Fashion Show collects 5000 books for the Children’s Book Bank!

cappMentor High School student Julia Cappellacci was the lead coordinator of an extremely successful book drive on behalf of the Fashion Show committee. Along with her co-junior editors, Matt Smith and Iva Keran, they organized placement of collection boxes in each high school homeroom class, collected and tabulated each book donated on a bi-weekly basis from November to December 6.

The competition was fierce and in the end, Mrs. Parmar’s and Mrs. Brady’s homeroom classes raised the most books, earning their classes cupcakes as well as tickets to attend the Fashion Show dress rehearsal. With the help of the senior head reps, Tess Power, Maddie McAvoy, and Alex Boucouvalas, they joyfully shipped 5000 gently used books to The Children’s Book Bank downtown Toronto on Thursday, December 12.
