Shoreline PTA needs underwear and socks for the 1200 children expected at the Back to School event

Saturday, July 30, 2011

The Works, the PTA clothing room for children in poverty who attend Shoreline Schools, needs donations of underwear and socks for their portion of the Back To School event on August 27.

One of four children in Shoreline Schools lives at or below the poverty line. Their families are struggling financially and outfitting children for school is a daunting task - even for the basics.

The Works has clothing and outerwear, but they only give new socks and new underwear.

All the PTAs in Shoreline Schools contribute financially to The Works. However, with 1200 children expected this year, they need help from the community.

The specific list is below - or you can just go to the store and get a pack of socks or underwear in children's sizes.

Donations can be dropped off at The WORKS portable at North City Elementary, 816 NE 190th Street, Shoreline any Wednesday evening in August from 5:30 to 8:00 pm, when the volunteers are there, or sooner by emailing or phoning Lisa Sharratt 206-369-5548.

The portables are at the west end of the school. There are signs.
