In order to safely provide clothes, shoes, backpacks, and school supplies to Arizona’s Title I students, this year’s distribution event will be executed using a hybrid model of both delivery and distribution. Although limited resources across districts requires us to ship many items directly to the schools (using the same process we did in 2020), we will also serve 1,000 children at a drive-through event in July. In total, we will get more than 4,000 students everything they need to be successful in school, whether they attend in-person or online! 

2021 “New Clothes, New Beginnings” is just a few short months away!

The 2021 distribution plan is the result of careful consideration regarding the lingering effects of the pandemic and the latest recommendations of the CDC. Please note, that in order to ensure the safety of our staff, students, partners, and volunteers, it is our policy to exceed minimum guidelines. While we’re confident this hybrid model is the best option for 2021, we plan to return to our regular in-person model – better than ever – in 2022! 
As much as we miss seeing all of our long-term volunteers, the hybrid model we’re employing doesn’t require as much help as our in-person event. As such, all of the volunteer shifts for this year are filled. We hope that you miss us as much as we miss you and that you make plans to join us in July of 2022! 
If you have any questions about the 2021 “New Clothes, new Beginnings” distribution please email our Director of Programs Janette Lopez.

You will find all the necessary forms and information at the blue buttons on this web page. If you choose to send a form home for parents to fill out, it is important to explain we need accurate information. We hope the Size Chart is useful.
When you receive the student orders back from parents, you or a staff person will need to enter their information online.

Students will receive the size that is entered by you / your staff.  If children receive incorrect sizes at the Distribution event, you are asked to make exchanges within the school clothing closet.

Student Orders may be entered online for multiple students at one time by clicking “Add another student”  After the last student for that data entry session is entered
