Uniforms for Kids Drive

Updated:
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Can you imagine being the only child in your class who is not wearing a school uniform? This can have a devastating impact on the self-esteem of a young child. Help us help needy and homeless children with school uniforms through this year's Uniforms for Kids effort.

Uniforms for Kids is truly a green project because it recycles a precious resource. We would love to have your used uniforms for needy children. Drop off your donation today at any Kean's location.

In today's difficult economy, low-income families are struggling just to pay for rent, utilities and food. Too often, there's not enough left over to buy school uniforms for growing children. Please help needy children through this year's Uniforms for Kids effort by making a financial gift.

A simple donation of $24 dollars will buy a child the two uniforms that he or she needs to attend school. To make a monetary donation to St. Vincent De Paul, click here.

Our Uniforms for Kids drive is an opportunity for you to help a student begin the school year with confidence. Together you, WAFB, St. Vincent De Paul and Kean's Fine Dry Cleaning can make a difference one uniform at a time.
