Threads Program Details

Through conversations with staff and parents, the school's principal or counselor will determine if there is a student in need of support. After making that decision, the principal will refer the student and parents contact information to the Swartz Creek's Director of Child and Community Development to review for participation in the Threads Program.


After being accepted and resources are obtained to support the student's participation, a representative of Community Education will contact the parents of the student and set up a special appointment to visit Threads Donation Center, located at the Swartz Creek’s Cage Community Center where they may shop in privacy and anonymity, taking home clothes and hygiene products which they can use to attend school without concern or worry.



*Important Note: To participate in the Threads Clothes Program, parents must contact the principal or counselor of their school. Do to the amount of money and resources, acceptance into the program is not guaranteed and is determined on a case-by-case basis.
