FOR DETROIT PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS

2018 Uniform Drive

This year we are excited to host our second uniform drive benefiting students at Detroit Public Schools Community District! It is our goal to make sure every child in Detroit has the right attire to get the knowledge they desire! 

Help make the start of a new school year even better by donating new or gently used uniforms for Detroit students. Through a partnership with Detroit Public School Community District we will be able to give uniforms directly to students who need them! 

Accepted items: include white collared shirts, khaki and blue pants/skirts in all sizes.

Collection Deadline: August 17th

NOT ABLE TO DONATE CLOTHES?

Feel free to donate the cost of a uniform to our PayPal. $20 will purchase a shirt and pants for one Detroit Public School Community District student!

Here are two links where uniforms can be purchased:

"Schools are in constant need for uniforms due to food spills or uncleaned uniforms. Often times, parents do not have the funds to purchase uniforms not to mention the new students who arrive to school without a uniform."
-Glynda Hutson, Counselor Noble Elementary-Middle
