Salvation Army Needs School Uniforms

The Tyler Salvation Army was at the mall this weekend, but they weren't looking to take advantage of the tax-free weekend. They were working to help kids, not to catch sales.

The Salvation Army was out collecting clothes and money for children's school uniforms. The uniforms will got to children who are part of the Army, and also area children who need uniforms. With area schools starting in the next few weeks, time is running out to help needy children. The Salvation Army feels it's very important for children to have the proper uniform, because it helps kids to start school on the same level as every one else.

"There's too many hurdles as it is without what they're wearing to be one of those," Linda Edwards of the Tyler Salvation Army said. "The school uniform program is wonderful because it breaks down one of those barriers. No one can look at a child and say, they're from a poor family."

If you'd like to donate school uniforms, you can drop them by the Salvation Army's location at 717 North Spring Street in Tyler. Credit card donations can also be made, by calling (903)592-4361.
