Friendship House “Back to School” Uniform & Clothing Drive

For many families in the Wilmington area, purchasing school uniforms is a hardship. To help combat that Friendship House would like to provide 3 polo shirts(light blue, navy or white) and 2 khaki/navy pants to 2,000 students in 5 targeted schools in the Red Clay Consolidated School District this fall.

How can you help! The Friendship House Clothing Bank has created a Target registry, you can purchase uniforms there, and they will send them directly to the Clothing Bank. Sizes especially needed are 5T- Youth 14. Old Navy is also having a uniform sale where items are 20% - 40% off!

Collection boxes for uniforms and gently used fall/winter clothes will be available following each worship service on August 15th and August 22nd until Noon. Look for them in the Narthex and just outside Founder’s Hall.     **Always needed are NEW underwear and socks in all sizes**
