  • Charity Newsies 24-25



    The Charity Newsies application for clothing assistance will open on July 29, 2024. We have capacity to serve 18,000 children. Applications will be taken and clothing pickups scheduled on a first come, first served basis. We encourage you to apply as soon as you can as we reached capacity last year in mid-September.


    If you are in an emergency situation, please contact your school social worker or case workers within whom you may be working with. 

    Additional clothing may be available at one of the free stores listed below:





    In 2023, clothing assistance applications opened on July 24, 2023. We anticipate clothing assistance for the 2024-2025 school year beginning again in the late summer of 2024.

    The Charity Newsies Clothe-A-Child program is designed for families in need of back-to-school clothing assistance. Qualifying families may submit one application per child per school year. All children of the family are to be on the same application.


    Applications are submitted on-line only. We no long accept in-person applications at our headquarters. Applicants will receive an appointment confirmation email within 3 business days of submitting the application. The confirmation will include the date & time of pick-up and a card number to claim the clothing. A recap of the children to receive clothing along with the school chosen and the clothing sizes selected will be included in the confirmation email.


    Pick-up appointments are scheduled during regular office hours (M-F) in the order in which the applications are received and approved. We do not have weekend pick-up. Charity Newsies reserves the right to verify all information provided on the application. False or incomplete information can delay or deny the approval of your application.


    Applicants are responsible for picking up the clothing at our headquarters. Unclaimed clothing will be returned to inventory and the application will be closed. Applicants who fail to pick up their clothing will not be able to reapply until the following school year.


    Clothing will be provided based on the dress code (if any) of the school indicated and the clothing sizes selected on the application. Clothing cannot be returned or exchanged, so it is important to select the correct sizes.


    Any questions regarding the application or the Clothe-A-Child program should be directed to clothing@charitynewsies.com

    Car riders and walkers may enter the building at 8:30. School begins at 9:00 a.m. We do not have supervision for students before 8:30 a.m. Car riders, please enter the parking lot entrance to the school and pull up to the curb and stay in the car. For safety, we need to maintain a single line of cars along the curb. Parents will not be permitted to walk their students into the school. We will have staff outside and inside to direct students to their classrooms. Bus riders will enter through the bus doors, as we have traditionally entered. Breakfast is available to all students. Tardy bell rings at 9:00 AM.


    If you plan to pick up your student, please enter the parking lot and stay in your car, in the pick up line, along the curb. We will have staff to walk with our prek and kindergarten students out to the cars. This will take some time to become efficient, please be patient as we develop this routine with our students. It is helpful if you have a large sign on your passenger door with your child’s name and grade level so that we can easily see the names to call. If the traffic gets stopped at the light, please feel free to park in the parking lanes nearest to Karl Road, and then walk to the sidewalk. We have a teacher on the sidewalk calling names. We ask that you social distance on the sidewalk.


    Cars are not allowed in the bus lane. This lane is only for buses and Day Care vehicles. We appreciate your cooperation in making sure that students are safe at dismissal.

  • Arrival/Dismissal Changes

    Please call the office before 2:30 p.m. if you are changing your child’s dismissal plan. We deliver messages to the classrooms between 2:30 and 3:00. During dismissal, we cannot answer the phones because we are all working to make sure that students are dismissed safely and efficiently. Some students arrive by car in the morning, but expected to ride the bus home in the evening, or by bus in the morning but car rider in the afternoon. Please communicate all dismissal changes. If a student is on the bus list, it is possible that the student will be sent home on the bus unless the parent has communicated to the office or teacher that the student is a car rider.

    Late Arrivals/Early Dismissal

    If your child is late to school, please escort to the main office. Your child will be signed in by the front office. For early dismissal, a valid ID is required for student pick up, and your child will only be released to adults over the age of 18 and listed on Infinite Campus. If you are sending someone else not listed on Infinite Campus to pick up your child, please call the office ahead of time to let us know, and make sure the individual has a valid ID.
