Legacy School & Career Apparel started a small “Uniform Closet” at the store in 2009 to bless those who couldn’t afford to purchase school uniforms for whatever reason. As an added incentive to get parents to donate their gently used uniforms rather than throwing them out, Legacy offers parents a 10% discount off of their next purchase of school uniforms when they donate to their uniform closet. The school uniforms that are donated to Legacy are disseminated freely throughout the community on a first come basis.
Most of the public and private schools that we work with also have “uniform closets” where parents can donate uniforms that their children have outgrown. Recycling uniforms not only keeps the uniform program strong; it teaches students the value of giving to others in need.
