  • The order will be filled by the Clothing Bank, which will work with schools on getting the items to students.
  • Students are eligible to receive:
  1. One pair of shoes per year
  2. One coat per year
  3. One package of socks two times a year
  4. One package of underwear two times a year.
  • Students also will receive a certificate for 3 outfits they can pick out at any Goodwill store in Albuquerque. An outfit consists of pants and shirt or a dress.
  • Students are eligible to receive 3 certificates a year: once in early fall, once before winter break and once before summer break.

“Thanks to this great, enhanced partnership with Goodwill we’ll be able to serve many more children,” said Sonja Martens, APS Volunteer Programs Manager, estimating that the Clothing Bank will be able to help at least 5,000 students this school year. “When students come to school feeling confident and comfortable, they’re better able to focus on their learning.”
