Coolwater Christian Church is sponsoring a school uniform drive for 4th through 6th
graders at Palomino Intermediate School, located at 15815 N. 29th St. in Phoenix. Palomino
is in a densely populated, high crime area of Phoenix. Uniforms are required in order to create
a level playing field for children of all income levels.
Most of the children (98.9%) who attend Palomino are under the national poverty level. While the school receives federal funding for school supplies, including backpacks, there are no funds available for uniforms. The school has changed their uniform policy to include t-shirts so costs will be reduced for families, but many children still don’t have the clothes needed.
Here’s where the community can help!
There are many ways you can participate in this important effort. You can donate money at https://coolwaterchurch.org/donate/give-online and choose the fund, school uniforms. Or you can purchase Hanes t-shirts like these at Walmart - https://www.walmart.com/ip/Hanes-Boys-6-18-CoolDri-Short-Sleeve-Active-T-Shirt-Value-Pack-3-Pack/378389354 in navy blue, black, or gray, in various sizes from boys size medium to adult size large.
You can also write a check payable to Coolwater. Be sure to write Palomino on the memo line.
Can you imagine the smiles on the faces of these children when they get to wear a new shirt on their first day back to school? If you have questions, please call Coolwater Church at 480-585-5554 or write us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
