MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. (WALA) - The school year is wrapping up and summer break is hours away. If you're wondering what to do with those school uniforms you may not need anymore, the Salvation Army wants you to consider donating it.
The Salvation Army is teaming up with the Mobile County School System for a school uniform drive.
"The Salvation Army was eager to get involved with a ‘back to school' drive for our community. We quickly realized the greatest need is actually school uniforms. They are an expensive requirement for school that many families cannot afford. We want to help these families send their students to school dressed and ready for academic success," explains Major Mark Brown, Area Commander for The Salvation Army.
Students and parents are asked to go through their closets for uniforms that may not fit next year or they may not need and donate it. The uniforms will be washed, ironed and redistributed by the Salvation Army before the start of the next school year in August.
Uniforms can be dropped off on Friday, May 24 at the following locations:
Baker High School
8901 Airport Blvd, Mobile
Blount High School
5450 Lott Rd, Eight Mile
Alma Bryant High School
