The Dream Center of Gaston County is delighted to sponsor the second annual Back 2 School Clothing Event. This event partners with parents and children across Gaston County to provide clothing for children registered to attend the 2016-2017 school year. The program is designed to assist low income families struggling financially so that the children within those families are better prepared to enter school in the fall with appropriate clothing.
Creating a culture of confidence
Applicants are pre-qualified to purchase clothes at reduced prices. An application is required.
Families will be able to buy new clothing, (discounted by 75-80%) for their children giving them a fresh start to the new school year.
Qualified Applicants will receive a shopping pass prior to the sale for the August 6th shopping date.
Why do it this way:
Purchasing items results in pride of ownership, freedom of choice, and dignity rather than dependency.
Items ‘given out’ in our society can perpetuate repeated patterns and expectations which do not foster independence.
When children are physically prepared for school, they are able to focus, engage with confidence, and often proceed positively.
Donations of newclothes are needed to assist our families in building confidence and self-sufficiency.
If you would like to get involved or make a donation of new clothing, please contact us at email@example.com
