Jute & Flax's

Winter's Coming
Back Pack & Winter Gear Drive

See A Need, Fill A Need

A few weeks ago we started to notice quite a few students with

old, worn down back packs and realized that with winter coming,

some local families may also be in need of other gear to help get through the winter season. Jute & Flax would like to bring together our community to help fill some of the needs our neighbors are facing.
