Ever hear a sad story and think "Something must be done about this!" ?
Well, that's what happened in the Fall of 2013 among a group of friends from Lowcountry Community Church.
The sad (but unfortunately true) story:
Kids were attending local schools in uniforms that were too tattered, too dirty or too ill-fitting to ever feel successful in the classroom or welcomed by their peers. Parents were contacting the schools because they didn't have the means to provide their children with the mandatory clothing.
What the group of friends did about it:
They dove into their own pockets and reached out to their awesome community to dive into their pockets, too, so that children in need could have brand new uniforms to wear to school. They called it Dress for Success.
So what happened?
YOU GUYS DELIVERED!!! Through a two-week long drive in the Spring of 2014, funds were donated to Dress for Success to purchase:
244 polo shirts
170 pairs of shorts
50 packs of underwear
You want to know what a happy social worker looks like?
Drop brand new, paid for uniforms in their office and say, 'Here ya go.' From there, the super helpful and hard working social workers supply the children in need with the uniforms.
Dress for Success is a registered non profit and charity organization in the state of South Carolina.
We keep on keepin' on.
Families are still struggling financially.
Children are still growing rapidly.
Dress for Success will keep giving.
Will you help us?
