(KPLR) – This week and next, parent groups around St. Louis are turning old clothes into cash for their children's schools as part of a smart new innovative program.
Julie Verslues talks with Christine Buck about this kids clothing drive called Schoola-Stich.
Schoola stitch is an innovative new program that has parents collecting gently used kid's clothes to go on sale online. Parents then shop for great deals on the clothes - and a portion of the proceeds goes right back to the school where the item was donated from.
It's designed as a win-win and a more modern way to help schools struggling with budget cuts.
Nationwide, 3,000 schools are taking part, including dozens in and around the St. Louis area.
Parents can unload clothing items that no longer fit (schoola stitch provides the bag and shipping for free).
Other moms and dads can get great deals on fashion finds and schools have a chance to raise much needed revenue.
