Skyline collects school clothing


Two school children choose clothes from Skyline Urban Ministry.

This month, Skyline Urban Ministry will host "Clothes for Kids," an annual school-uniform clothing drive for students in Oklahoma City.

The drive will be held July 18-30, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in The McKee Center at 500 S.E. 15th St.

This Skyline program annually provides more than 1,400 young students with new uniforms, shoes, socks, and underwear for the upcoming school year.

"The support of this community is what holds this program together," said Robert Taylor, "Clothes for Kids" site director. "We don’t just supply clothes for kids; we supply self-esteem and happiness on the first day of school."

As well as donations, volunteers are needed to help register families and assist students in choosing their uniform sizes.

"There is nothing better than watching these kids walk out with new school uniforms and knowing we are making a difference. I think each child, poor or rich, deserves the same opportunity to have new uniforms," said Skyline Urban Ministry’s director, Claudia Lovelace.
