   Ms. Dickens' 5th grade class won first place by collecting the largest amount of items during East Ridge Elementary's "Squeaky Clean" donation drive.
   East Ridge Elementary's PTA CARE Club and ASB sponsored a "Squeaky Clean" donation drive Oct. 28-Nov. 1 to benefit Hopelink's Northshore Center in Bothell.
   Over 3,200 personal care products such as bath soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, and toilet paper were collected during the week-long drive.
   Hopelink is a human service agency that helps homeless and low-income families, children, seniors, and people with disabilities throughout north and east King County.
