Uniforms for Kids continues to help students

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

WAFB and St. Vincent de Paul's "Uniforms for Kids" campaign is in full swing. School is around the corner and there is no better time to give  a helping hand.

"Many families are struggling to put food on the table and so many moms working two or three jobs trying to make ends meet," said St. Vincent de Paul'sMichael Acaldo.

"Uniforms for Kids" has been helping families since 1998. Acaldo says having the right clothes for school takes the pressure off of children so they can focus on the books.  

"When you see that child get that uniform and know they don't have to go to school, face embarrassment or reticule because they don't have the right attire on," said Acaldo.

Last year was the first time Danielle Bailey relied on uniforms for kids for her three daughters.

"I actually work, but part-time, so this was a blessing for me to be able to get shirts and bottoms for my kids to start off the few days of school, "said Bailey.

With a little help from generous people like you, her children and hundreds of others in our community will be dressed for success.
