Dignity U Wear has been providing new size-specific clothing to Clay County students for years; however, this location will help social workers provide supplies to families in need without leaving the county.
"Millions of children and their families are considered homeless or living well below the poverty level on any given day in the United States. Now imagine not being able to provide basic essentials for your children. Dignity U Wear is proud to partner with Clay County District Schools to open a clothing closet for those in need. The district has worked hard to make this happen and we are happy to assist, as we have been partners for years," said Nicole Brose, President of Dignity U Wear.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Dignity U Wear, an organization dedicated to helping families within our district and beyond. Our ultimate goal is to create the best environment for our students to be able to learn and grow. This new distribution center assists by filling the gap for those students in need,” said Addison Davis, Clay County’s superintendent of schools.
WHEN: Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, Friday, February 10th at 1:00 p.m.
WHERE: Orange Park High School, 2300 Kingsley Avenue, Orange Park, FL 32073
About Dignity U Wear: A non-profit organization that assists people in need by providing new size-specific clothing through partnerships with non-profit social service agencies and school districts. Families in crisis, the homeless, and veterans are the primary recipients. The goal is to never turn away someone in need, particularly those affected by disaster or other misfortune. For the disadvantaged, getting a step-up when life knocks one down is crucial. Whether an individual is focused on getting an education, obtaining a job, or, as in the case of many veterans, transitioning from military to civilian life, Dignity U Wear believes even small gestures can pay big dividends. Dignity U Wear is proud to be assigned a 4-star rating by Charity Navigator, America’s premier independent charity evaluator.
