We are excited to announce the beginning of our January clothing drive in partnership with After8toEducate! Your generous donations help support the needs of the thousands of youth served by their mission. You may select to donate either a much-needed article of new and unused clothing or make a quick and easy cash donation by following the directions below.


After8toEducate’s mission is to serve the needs of the 4,000+ homeless youth population of the Dallas ISD. You may read more about their mission and work at

The clothing needs and the list of requested items are below. All donated items must be new and unused. They can use all sizes but the greatest need is for larger sizes – Large, XL, 2XL, and up.  Coats are also welcomed.
