The APS Community Clothing Bank is partnering with Goodwill Industries of New Mexico to make sure students in need have clothes, shoes, undergarments and coats so they can focus on learning.
Beginning this month, students or parents can go to the school counselor, nurse or social work and place an order for new socks, underwear and shoes as well as for a new or slightly used coat. The order will be filled by the Clothing Bank, which will work with schools on getting the items to students.
In addition, students will receive a certificate for three outfits they can pick out at any Goodwill Industries store in Albuquerque. An outfit consists of pants and shirt or a dress. Read More.
