“This event is a direct response to a community need to provide assistance to families in need of school uniforms. Through community donations, the help of Brass Hanger Cleaners and the Pascagoula-Gautier School District, we are excited to hold the 2018 Uniform Closet distribution event. “
In 2017, Junior Auxiliary of Pascagoula-Moss Point distributed 1,000 individual uniform pieces which benefitted 200 students, at no expense to the families! We have had a great response this year, and we look forward to the event on July 26th,” said Erin Marks, RN, QuadMed, and Junior Auxiliary Uniform Closet Chairman & Board Member.
