SCHOOL BOUTIQUE CARES FOR CHILDREN
Stella Porter, WNYT
Inside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School, a neighborhood school serving students in pre-K through fifth grade, lives a boutique with a unique purpose.
Check out this WNYT News coverage that takes us inside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School… where your generous donations are making a big impact. One of many school clothing rooms in the area, Unique Boutique is helping meet the needs of local children and families by offering students the opportunity to ‘shop’ clothing and other essential items. City Mission, with your help, is able to provide items to stock the boutique.
Unique Boutique is amongst the many classrooms that fill the halls of the school and is open to students anytime they need it. Students can also, as a reward for showing kindness to others or performing well in school, earn ‘King Bucks’ - a currency they can use to shop the boutique. With essential needs being met, children can better focus on school, their loved ones and the joys of youth.
Your clothing donations and caring hearts are what make change possible in our community. Unique Boutique is a great example of what a community coming together can make possible… and we are grateful to people like you for offering your support in providing a helping hand to local people in need. Thank you for spreading a sense of safety and security, as well as some big smiles, to many children and their families!
