A child may be seen two times during the school year (once per semester). You must obtain a new clothing card from your child's school each time. Cards must be completed by a school administrator.
Clients are seen by appointment only.
Clients are served three days per week: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
If you cannot make your scheduled appointment, please call at least 30 minutes prior so we may reschedule. This allows staff the opportunity to offer your time to another child. (594-3791)
ALLOTMENT (subject to change)
Each child served at the center receives new items including one or two pairs of pants, one or more shirts, several pair of socks and underwear, and a number of gently used items. The number of new and used items is determined by availability and school dress code requirements.
All clients are Knox County Public School students in grades preschool through 12 who meet income level requirements of the Free and Reduced Meal Program with the exception of emergencies (home fire, displacement, etc.).
How Do I Get Clothing For My Child?
For each child needing clothing, obtain a clothing card from the school they are attending. The card must be completed and verified for eligibility by a school administrator, then signed by the principal. Please contact your child's school directly to begin this process.
Call the Clothing Center on a Thursday to schedule an appointment. (594-3791) Appointments are set on a first come-first served basis and do fill quickly. The Center begins taking calls at 8:00am. Once slots for the upcoming week are filled, an answering machine will provide information for scheduling the next week. The Staff allows for 20 minutes per child.
Bring clothing card(s), completed by your child's school, and some form of identification to your appointment(s).
