We are looking for pearls for Jesus.

School Uniform Bank

 
The School Uniform Bank has been our mission since 2001, shortly after the School District of Lancaster began requiring all students in grades K-8 to wear uniforms to school.
 
Since its beginning, the School Uniform Bank has served approximately 1,800 students each year, providing, on average, two sets of uniforms for each child.
 
Help us to serve SDoL students!
 
The uniform guidelines are:
 
Tops: White, navy or light blue, collared button-front shirts or blouses, turtlenecks, collared polo shirts.
 
Bottoms: Navy or tan – for girls, slacks, cargo-style pants, skirts, skorts, shorts, capris or jumpers; for boys – slacks, cargo pants or shorts.
 
Overclothing: White, navy or light blue, cardigans, V-neck, crewneck and turtleneck sweaters or sweater vests over collared shirts or blouses.
 
Pearl Street gratefully accepts donations of new and gently used items of clothes under the above guidelines, as well as cash contributions, which we use to buy new uniforms.
 
Make checks payable to School Uniform Bank and mail to:

If you need help
 

There will be a way in which requests for school uniforms will be made. We are asking all social service workers who are aware of a student who needs school uniforms to have the parent/guardian contact the student's school to make that request.

We will no longer be filling orders for uniforms from social agencies at the church. This change was necessary for us to better manage our resources and volunteer help available at Pearl Street Church.

Pearl Street Church remains committed to serving as many school children with uniforms as we possibly can.

Also, anyone wishing to donate new or used clothing, please drop them off 9 a.m. - noon weekdays. Please call the church office, 393-8892. Monetary donations can be mailed to School Uniform Bank, Pearl Street United Methodist Church, 133 Pearl Street, Lancaster, PA 17603. A full uniform costs about $25.00. Students in the Lancaster School District are required to wear navy or khaki bottoms, and white, light blue or navy tops (collars, no insignias)
