Clothes For Our Kids!

Posted by on Oct 27, 2011 in blog | Comments Off on Clothes For Our Kids!

Although the blistering heat and long days of August sunshine were only a couple of months ago, the brisk air of fall has already set in and it won’t be long before bone-chilling temperatures of a typical Nebraska winter are here to stay. While for many kids the winter season is a fun time filled with snow-ball fights and down-hill sled races, for those who do not have enough cold-weather gear, the early morning wait for the bus, or the walk home from school can seem like a frosty form of torment.

As a way to help more students avoid this scenario, The Partnership For Our Kids is introducing Clothes For Our Kids! , a clothing drive benefitting students in need at Partnership schools. During the entire month of November, the Partnership will be collecting new and gently-used clothing at three local drop-off locations, which include The Burlington Capital Building, 1004 Farnam Street; Omaha State Bank, 132nd and Maple and First National Tower, 1601 Dodge St. Clothing items can be dropped off in the designated bins during regular business hours, Monday through Friday. Needed items include winter coats, hats, gloves and scarves as well as warm sweaters, sweatshirts, jeans, and boots, all sizes are accepted.

The items collected will be distributed to Belvedere and Jackson Elementary Schools and Monroe and Norris Middle Schools during the first week in December.
