BENEFITING: Dignity U Wear Foundation, Inc.
Schools that enforce dress codes, uniforms and appropriate clothing guidelines promote a better learning environment and this may decrease tensions, reduce socio-economic differences and enhance safety. When students are dressed in clothing that fits, is clean, is school appropriate they will put more focus on learning, rather then how they fit in with other students. Students dressed appropriately also tend to view the climate of their school in a more positive way, according to the Clearinghouse on Education Policy and Management. Peer relationships, especially when instances of bullying occur, can affect both attendance and academic success; with new clothing Dignity U Wear will provide one resource available to school professionals to remove another barrier to education.
Your donations: $1.00 supplies $10.00 in new clothing $15.00 supplies a student with two complete uniforms or school appropriate outfits. $5,000 supplies enough new school clothing for 300 children to include: 2 pants, 2 shirts, 2 underwear and 2 socks. $10,000 will supply enough new school clothing for 650 children living below the poverty level. Last year Dignity U Wear provided 96,000 children nationwide with new school clothing, please support the mission to improve the quality of a child’s school experience and help us help them Learn with Dignity.
Every dollar collected goes directly to supplying a child with school appropriate clothing.
