Springfield Council of PTAs Clothing Bank

Central High School
Springfield Public Schools

When kids go back to school, many times they are eager to show off their back-to-school outfits. However, there are some kids who are not so fortunate. Several local PTAs have banded together to create a clothing bank for those who can’t afford new clothes.

The PTA Clothing Bank is inside the Study Alternative Center at 2343 W. Olive Street in Springfield. It’s open Thursdays from 2:30-5:00 pm, and one Saturday a month from 9 to 11 am.

Five southwest Missouri non-profits are to collectively receive $100,000 through Mercy Clinic’s Force for Good grant program, which is funded through the contributions of the company’s physicians and co-workers. KSMU’s Scott Harvey has details.
