Free clothes for kids at giveaway April 20

If you have a child in school, he or she needs clothes.

And the leadership students and staff at School District 43’s GOAL (Goal-oriented Alternative Learning) program are presenting a clothing giveaway next week.

On April 20 in the gym at Winslow Centre, the giveaway is open to all families (although organizers have reserved the time from 9 to 10 a.m. for schools to bring especially needy kids or send school staff or youth workers to have first choice of needed clothing items for at risk-students). It runs from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and features good quality, lightly used clothing for students from five to 18 years of age.

Among the items to be distributed are shoes and pants plus thousands of shorts, t-shirts and hoodies as well hats, gym bags and lunch bags and more. Everything has been washed and cleaned.

Winslow Centre is located at 1100 Winslow Ave. in Coquitlam.
