School Uniforms

THE PROBLEM
For many families in Delaware, purchasing clothing that adheres to the school dress code is a hardship.

There are few resources for school uniform items like polo shirts and khaki/navy pants when families can’t afford to buy them, but many schools in Delaware require them. Without the required school dress code, the consequences for students can be significant. Any help that we can offer to ease this one burden for these students and families will make a huge difference and provides students with the confidence needed to excel in academics.

OUR GOAL
We will assist Delaware public schools that have limited resources and provide uniform items to be distributed to their students.
In 2023, we were able to provide over 10,000 uniform items to 18 public schools in Delaware. Our plan is to expand our reach incrementally until we are eventually serving the entire state.

OUR STRATEGY
Our program contains many elements and several strategies.

Our uniform program relies heavily on community participation and support, and we are always looking for collaborators. We are seeking donations of new uniform items, as well as financial contributions which will allow us to purchase the uniforms needed. A $50 donation supports one student. Additionally, we know that there are many outgrown school uniforms that still have a lot of life left in them, and we are working hard to capture them and redistribute them to other students.

OUR NEED
New or gently-used uniform items in all sizes ranging from youth to adult.

  • Pants: khaki & navy
  • Polo shirts: any color
