(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- With trying times and economic hardships, Miami-Dade County Commissioner Sally Heyman, District 4, has organized a school uniform recycling program in her district. The program would allow for parents to donate their children's school uniforms which they can no longer use either due to change of schools or simply outgrowing them and have them made available for others to use.
"I thought it would be a great benefit to parents with school-aged children to participate in this worthwhile program," said Commissioner Heyman. "Parents could donate the school uniforms their children have out-grown in order to help others."
Parents interested in participating in this program can stop by Team Metro Northeast, 1658 NE Miami Gardens Drive, and drop off school uniforms in the designated box from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. beginning Monday, July 28th through Friday, August 8th. The uniforms will be laundered and delivered to each school's PTA for them to distribute prior to the school year. Throughout the school year parents may continue to drop off uniforms for the PTA at their child's school to distribute where needed.
Should you have any questions regarding this program, please contact Commissioner Heyman's District office at 305-787-5999.
