Founded in 1990 by Alan Silverman, Uniforms for Kids is a non-profit organization providing school uniforms for financially disadvantaged children in local school districts. The program is staffed entirely by volunteers and supported by financial and in-kind donations from several companies and generous individuals. Alan Silverman personally matches every monetary donation
Uniforms for Kids provides new and recycled uniforms to kids in need. People who bring in gently used uniforms to Silverman's department stores, receive a discount on new uniforms with each donation. After the uniforms are collected, Cintas - the uniform company - donates their cleaning services, Handl-it storage company warehouses the clean uniforms, and Thomas Transport delivers them to the appropriate school administrators and social service agencies. Alan Silverman's also donates many new uniforms to children who have been through especially difficult events.
In addition to distributing the uniforms themselves, Silverman's also leads fundraising efforts to provide vouchers for new uniforms. Vouchers are funded by both private and public donations, including contributions from school uniform manufacturers, like French Toast. Your support is greatly appreciated and helps ensure that local children don't have to miss school simply because they can't
afford the uniforms.
