Donate Used School Supplies and Uniforms

Note sure what to do with gently used school uniforms or supplies? Donate them!

School is out! Not sure what to do with your student’s school supplies? Donate them. I have tons of books, crayons, and other art supplies that sit in baskets and on desks in my children’s room. While most of it gets used, there are supplies
that simply go to waste. I always make it a habit to donate gently used
supplies. School uniforms may also be donated.

If your kids are anything like mine, they grow like weeds and none of their clothes will fit in August. Consider donating clothes to Oasis or the Goodwill. Books may be donated to The Book Swap. Churches and youth groups will accept gently used art supplies.

Any other suggestions on what to do with gently used school supplies and school clothes?

Please keep us posted Jen! We would like to help you let the community know about it. Perhaps there is even some way Patch and the Y can join forces?
