Threadz program gives free clothes, supplies to Tempe students

Posted

With students going back to school, the Tempe Union High School District’s Threadz program is gearing up again. 

Threadz offers free clothing, hygiene products and school supplies to Tempe high school and middle school students with a valid ID. The closets are open Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school year at several different locations. 

Tempe High School and Marcos de Niza High School are both participating again this year. Mountain Pointe High School will open a Threadz closet of its own for the first time this year. 

Volunteers and donations are still needed for all three locations. New or gently used clothing for teens ages 13 to 17 are in demand, as are full-size personal care items, new school supplies and gift cards or cash donations. 

According to the district, Threadz was created in 2009 in partnership with Communities in Schools of Tempe and Kyrene after requests from school staff and social workers. The centers are open to teenagers in the Tempe Union, Tempe Elementary, and Kyrene School districts.
