Time to clean out those closets again! We were successful our first-time with Schoola that we decided to try it again this spring.

Remember how easy it was? If not, no worries, here’s what you need to do.

Stuff a bag with high-quality, well cared-for clothes
for toddlers, kids and women. The things
you’d feel best about giving a friend will raise the
most. Drop off bags during morning drop off or
outside the front office from April 6th until April 17th.

Spread the word to your friends and family
through our very own Schoola page: http://bit.
. They can also donate
clothes to benefit our school!

Schoola will spiff and sell our clothes on their
online shop ( For every $5
customers spend, they’ll send $2 back to
Austin Elementary! How good is that?!
