School Dressing Days

The annual School Dressing Days will be held August 11 and 12, at the LDS church on Bragg Road.  New clothing, school supplies, backpacks and toiletries are provided to children grades K-12 to get ready for back to school.  Ways to be involved: help families “shop,” keep items replenished, clean up, etc., help set up on August 9 and 10, and help with pre-registration in June and July. We have a great need for those who speak Spanish or other languages to assist our refugee population.  To volunteer, you can choose your time slot and sign up with Signup Genius (signupgenius.com and search schooldressingdays@gmail.com) or watch for a signup sheet on Sunday mornings.  Additional ways to help include: monetary donations (make check to Interfaith Community Council with “School Dressing Days” on the memo line); donations of girls’ underwear, sizes 10, 12, 14 (no hi-rise briefs please), or boys and men’s socks ( all sizes and styles except small). Toiletry items are always needed (bar soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and deodorant).  We are also collecting new and/or gently used tennis shoes (all sizes), flats for teenage girls, backpacks, and gently used or new hoodies.  Please do not bring worn out shoes.  Donations may be put in the bin in the Education Building Lobby or outside the sanctuary on Sundays.  Questions?
