This Thursday marked the grand opening of the Parents’ Auxiliary Used Uniform shop located at the school’s Shelbourne Street facility. All proceeds from used uniform sales and other PA fundraising activities go directly back to the school in the form of funding allocations.
Last year the Parents’ Auxiliary raised more than $58,000, $22,000 of which came from used uniform sales. So far this year, the Parents’ Auxiliary has raised close to $16,000 with used uniform sales.
“Our goal for this point in the year was $10,000, so we are doing really well,” says PA member Janet Grogan, who has been instrumental in setting up the shop.
This is the first time in many years that used uniforms have been available for sale mid-year. The shop – which is completely run by parent volunteers – is located just one block east of the Richmond Road campus at 3410 Shelbourne Street.
The PA Used Uniform shop will be open the first Tuesday of each month from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Donations can be dropped off at the Shelbourne St. location during these hours, or be brought to Jane Smith in the Campus Shop. Donation bins can also be found in the main foyers of Middle School and Junior School.
Uniforms with old crests will be donated to schools and orphanages overseas.
