Clothing pick-up appointments will be emailed as part of your application confirmation. This appointment is computer generated. If you are unable to make your assigned appointment date and time, you are required to find a family member or friend to pick up the clothing on your behalf.

Clothing Packets will consist of one winter coat, knit hat and gloves, 3 pairs of pants, 3 shirts, 6 pairs of socks and underwear. All clothing will conform with the published uniform and/or dress code policy of each child’s school. For schools that allow a uniform only, a uniform voucher will be provided in lieu of the shirts and pants, as applicable.

Clothing is non-exchangable. Please select the proper sizes for your children.

Curbside Pick-up. Children do NOT need to be present in order to pick up the clothing packets. Upon arriving, please stay in your car and a Newsies representative will come to you. Please have your card number from your confirmation email available for them to check. If you are unable to make your appointed time, please forward your email confirmation to someone who can pick-up on your behalf. Please wear a mask for this process. Clothing not claimed by the Friday following your appointment date will be returned to inventory and the application will be forfeited.
