Decluttering for a Cause: Donate to the Project STORY Back-to-School Clothes Swap!

Families and friends of Project STORY are invited to Keach Park on Sunday, August 27th, from 3-6 pm for a special Back-to-School Celebration featuring our Project🏀DREAMS All Star Basketball Team! Project STORY youth will receive school supplies, generously donated by Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies. There will also be a Clothing Swap, haircuts by MALIK, and dinner for the kids. Project🏀DREAMS will showcase their skills on the court while everyone enjoys the tunes of DJ SMOOVY! (Rain or Shine)

The idea behind the clothes swap is simple yet powerful. Families bring in good quality, used clothes and shoes that their children have outgrown or no longer need. These items are then laid out on three blankets, labeled by size, allowing Project STORY kids to sort through the items and choose what works best for them. It's a win-win situation where kids get to refresh their wardrobe for the upcoming school year, and Concord parents can clear space in their closets while promoting sustainable practices.


CLOTHES/SHOES DONATIONS

Interested in donating threads? It's simple:

  1. Sort your clothes into these three size ranges: Kids 2T-10 | Tween/Teen 11-16 | Adult XS-L (some of our older kiddos wear adult sizes)

  2. Place sorted clothes into trash bags clearly labeled (Kids/Tween/Adult). (Please avoid overstuffing trash bags so they remain intact when in transit.)

  3. Place any kids shoes in a trash bag marked "shoes" (no need to sort sizes).

  4. Deliver bags to the front porch of 49 Thorndike Street by August 26th!

  5. Day of the event - Deliver clothes directly to Keach Park between 2-4pm!

The impact of your donations goes beyond just clothing – it helps ensure that every child has access to suitable clothes and supplies for school, regardless of their family's financial situation. Project STORY's efforts are making a tangible difference in the lives of these children, and your help is a part of that positive change.


Gratefully,

The Project STORY Team
