The PTA Clothing Bank

News From Your PTA Clothing Bank

By Mandy Mitchell

Our last day at the Clothing Bank was March 5. We had plans to return after Spring Break but were unable to do so because of Covid-19. As of today, May 22, our school buildings and much of our city is still shut down. We have been planning on how to return to serve the kids of SPS, but it will take some time to make changes in the way we serve to keep everyone safe.

As of today, summer shopping dates and back to school shopping is unclear.

Regardless of what decisions we make and how things look, THANK YOU for your teamwork and dedication that made The PTA Clothing Bank an excellent place for yet another year!

PTA Clothing Bank, 2343 W. Olive Street, 65802 (Study Alternative Center), has a separate entrance behind the school, on the northeast side of the building.  Look for the double doors with our sign above the doors.

During the school year, PTA Clothing Bank is open to shoppers on most Thursdays (2:30-5:00 pm) and one Saturday* (9:00-11:00) per month (except February)

Volunteers are needed from 9am – 5pm on Thursdays that we are open and from 9am – 11pm on Saturdays we are open.  Local Unit PTAs, please send as many volunteers as you can on your school’s assigned day; however, volunteers can work any day for any amount of time that they are available.  Thank you!
