ELIGIBILITY

Lamar CISD families that find themselves in difficult situations may be eligible for assistance from Common Threads. Questions about participation in the program should be directed to the school nurse. Community members may also provide information about families needing assistance by contacting the student's school nurse. All referrals are confidential.

After the referral is approved parents and students may choose to select school clothes at Common Threads or to have a clothing request filled and sent to the campus. Each student will be provided with new or gently used sets of clothes, socks, undergarments, shoes, toiletry items and backpacks based on availability.

GETTING INVOLVED

Parents, student organizations and community members are all welcome to volunteer at Common Threads. Volunteers can help at the campus level by assisting the school nurse with clothing drives and organizing the donations. They can also volunteer at Common Threads and assist with washing, folding, and sorting clothes; filling orders and assisting parents and students with clothing selections.
