As we reach the end of the summer break, it will be time to start stocking on up on those back to school essentials. It will be time to search for new school uniforms and kids’ clothes. But what do you do with the clothing your kids have grown out of?
Don’t throw it all away. Gently worn clothes can be turned into cash to support schools across the country!
A clothing company called Schoola is pioneering an initiative to help schools deal with budget cuts. And at the same time, you can save money by buying your kids’ new and gently-used clothes from the their website. Everyone wins with Schoola, and you get to feel good about making a difference in other people’s lives.
Schoola was founded by parent, teacher, and former school principal, Stacey Boyd. She created the company in 2013 to raise much-needed funds for schools. The money made by Schoola helps kids to paint, draw and play sports and music. The money goes towards much-needed resources such as art supplies and musical instruments.
It all began with a handful of schools organizing clothing drives. Those clothes were then sold on the website at cut-down prices. All of the proceeds went to schools. Since its inception, Schoola has funded an orchestra, a school playground, and many other initiatives. The company partners with more than 22,000 schools, some of which have raised more than $50,000 each.
