Uniforms for Excellence

btn_donateCC_LG

Simple Needs GA’s Uniforms for Excellence program helps schoolchildren in Cobb County “dress for success” by providing them with required school uniforms their parents struggle to afford. Donors provide gently used khakis, skirts and polo shirts that meet the requirements of individual schools. Alternately, they fund the purchase of brand-new uniforms.

We are currently concentrating this program in Powder Springs, Ga. However, we most likely will end up helping other Cobb County schools as well. If you’re interested in helping us with this, keep an eye on clearance racks at discount-oriented retailers like Walmart. On one trip, we found 10 pairs of khakis for just $7 or $9 each, along with 30 polos at just $3 each! The two schools we are concentrating on in Powder Springs need polos in blue, navy, white, hunter green, yellow, pink, grey, burnt orange or black. If anyone donates another color, we’ll share it with other schools.
