Like the rest of the Bank Street College, we, at the Bank Street Summer Camp, transformed out logo toward the end of 2011. Suddenly we had hundreds of shirts with our old logo that we couldn't use. We donated over 500 shirts to the the Kliptown Youth Program in South Africa.

On December 3rd, CNN held their annual CNN Heroes program, in which they highlighted Thulani Madondo, the founder and director of Kliptown Youth Program, as a finalist.

If you know of someone or some place in need of clothing or hat donations, please let the Camp know as we still have plenty to donate.
