The Clothing Bank collects clothing from retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers and the general public, then repairs, sorts and distributes clothing to needy communities. The organisation also provides employment for mothers, empowering them through enterprise development.
How can you support MySchool Clothing Donation Day: Simply take a pair of grey school pants, a white shirt, a pair of grey or white socks, a grey, black or navy jersey, blazer or skirt, or any other appropriate clothing for young learners, and deliver it at one of the drop-off points situated throughout Cape Town.
The drop-off points are Durbanville Primary School, Kenilworth Centre, CBC St Johns, Customer Services at Canal Walk, Woolworths Canal Walk, Welgemoed Primary School and Rondebosch Boys Preparatory School. Second hand and new uniforms are welcome – much like MySchool’s “every swipe counts” slogan, in this instance, every “item” counts!
“The MySchool Clothing Donation Day is an important way in which each of us can do something tangible for another child. If your child has outgrown his old blazer or skirt, why not give it someone who can still find it useful? Or simply have a look through your cupboard for your old school clothes. We can all make a difference no matter how big or small,” comments Pieter Twine, MySchool's general manager.
