Sara attends her local high school. Before she arrives at her school each morning, she has to get her siblings ready and walk them to their school first, since her parents are busy working multiple jobs and still having trouble making ends meet. Outside of the typical teenage stresses, Sara also worries about having warm school clothes that she and her siblings can be proud of and that will keep them warm and focused on their studies.
NewThreads partners with many schools, including Sara’s, to provide new and stylish winter wear to thousands of students from low-income households. Sara’s family was so appreciative of the clothing items they received which are helping to easy one the barriers of living in poverty. In fact, Sara (and many other students) even inquired whether coats could be made available to their younger siblings so they may also be protected from the cold and feel confident.
The fact the students liked the items so much that they wanted to share with their younger siblings speaks volumes about the quality of the items provided as well as the caring concern of these high school students for their families.
Please see our wish list for a complete listing of items.
