Bay District Schools to Host Clothing Drive for Children in Need

BAY COUNTY, Fla. - If you have a child enrolled in Bay District schools who needs some new clothes, shoes or perhaps a back pack after Hurricane Michael, there are dozens of people ready to help fill the need.

Bay district school volunteers have collected tons of clothing items and shoes for students from Pre-K through 12th grade. They're storing the donations at a warehouse in Panama City. pParents can fill out a form at their child's school with their clothing needs and then volunteers at the warehouse will fill the orders and return the new items back to school for pick up. 

Saturday, November 10, from 8am to 12pm any parent who has NOT filled out an emergency clothing form can go to the warehouse and get new clothes on the spot.

"Each bag is individually packed. There is a slip of paper that says, 'little Johnny' and he wears size 6 pants and size 8 shoe and somebody back here has that student and is personally picking out those items for that student. You just can't get any more personal than that," said Bay District Communications Director Sharon Michalik. 

Event information:

Saturday, November 10th

8am to 12pm

1120 W. 17th St, Panama City

***ONLY for parents who have not yet filled out a form for clothes at their child's school.

If you want to volunteer or donate start by sending an email to: BDSComm@Bay.K12.fl.us
