Q Commons Sacramento: This Thursday!
Community Resource: Sweatshirt Program
It's officially Fall and sweatshirt weather! But some kids that attend our local schools don't have enough warm clothing to feel comfortable during the fall and winter months. Churches are meeting the needs of kids without warm clothing with a very simple idea: A Sweatshirt Program! Watch the video above to see how it works. For every school sweatshirt bought by a church member, two are donated to the school. A Sweatshirt Program promotes unity within the student body and provides a wardrobe staple for kids so they can stay warm and fit in even if their families have limited clothing budgets. And, on the church side, it promotes "buy-in" of the church–school partnership and encourages members to serve.
You can engage with a local clothing company of your choice, or choose Righteous Clothing, a company that offers a "buy one, get two free" deal to every church in the United States that is serving a public school. Check out their designs and selection here. Find out more information including a step by step guide to implement a sweatshirt program here
