For many families in the Wilmington area, purchasing school uniforms is a hardship. To help combat that Friendship House would like to provide 3 solid color polo shirts and 2 khaki/navy pants to 2,000 students in 13 targeted schools in New Castle County this fall.

How can you help! Come to our Goodness Expo on Sunday, August 14th and have the opportunity to purchase from the new uniforms that we will have available that day. We will have a table at the EXPO where you can shop for the pants or shirts that you would like to donate.  Shirts are $6.00 each, pants are $20.00 each. You can pay by check, credit card, or cash (exact change only). 

If you are unable to join us in Founders Hall on the 14th or 21st but would still like to donate, the Friendship House Clothing Bank has created a Target Registry and Amazon Registry. You can purchase uniforms there, and they will send them directly to the Clothing Bank. Gently used solid color polos and khaki/navy pants can also be donated. All sizes are needed! 

Collection boxes for uniforms and new or "like new" men's clothes will be available in Founders Hall following each worship service on August 14th and August 21st until Noon.

*Always needed are NEW underwear and socks in all sizes**
