Help Locker#505 raise funds to continue serving students in Bernalillo County!
Here's how it works:
-determine the number of daily coffees (or cocktails) you are willing to “forego” to support children of Bernalillo County.
-go to www.locker505.org and go to the donor button on our home page and follow the prompts to make a monthly/reoccurring donation in the amount of which you would normally be spending for coffee.
For example: If I give up three coffees a week at my normal cost of around $15.00, then I will commit to instead donating $15.00 a month to Locker#505.
-these donations make it possible for us to continue to clothe 70 or more students each week.
Students receive new socks, new underwear, new shoes and a minimum of 3 outfits consisting of new and gently used clothing.
Locker#505 is currently accepting referrals to see students. Until students begin returning to school in person, we will not be distributing uniforms.
Please contact Locker#505 if you have any questions.
Provide appropriate school clothing to K-12 Bernalillo County students in need.
Locker #505 student clothing bank is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that has established a student-focused facility where children can try on and choose outfits that they feel good about wearing. Having appropriate school clothing allows children to concentrate on their school work, not their clothing. It also helps keep children, who might not go to class because of their clothes, stay in school.
It is crucial to us that each student is treated with the utmost respect and kindness and leaves Locker #505 feeling good.
In 1950, concerned parents and teachers, recognizing the need to assist some students with clothing and shoes, began the BCCPTA Clothing Bank. This was a student-centered facility where children could try on clothes in comfortable and welcoming surroundings aided by caring and knowledgeable employees and volunteers. When the BCCPTA Clothing Bank closed its doors in 2013, a great resource for children was lost to the Bernalillo County community. Locker #505 was founded in 2014 to once again provide a student-centered clothing facility for children in need where they can find loving assistance in choosing appropriate school clothing.
Whether you help through monetary donations, clothing donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
