ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque Public Schools’ Community Clothing Bank will now distribute its clothes through Goodwill Industries of New Mexico.
Under the partnership, students will no longer pick up clothes at the clothing bank’s University Boulevard location.
Instead, they or their parents can request a certificate from school counselors, nurses or social workers.
The certificates are good for three outfits that students can pick up at Goodwill Industries locations in Albuquerque. Students can request a certificate three times a year.
“These new changes mean the APS Community Clothing Bank can help more students, offer them better clothing selection and help them maintain dignity and style,” Sonja Martens, APS volunteer programs manager, said in a press release.
