More than 2,000 JCPS students will receive a new uniform and, along with their families, will be able to shop for other clothes at no cost.

"Today alone there are over 200 families coming here to check out the clothing. All is new or gently used," said JCPS acting superintendent Dr. Marty Pollio. "Families can get the things they need to be successful."
