OKLAHOMA CITY – It’s a generous donation for school kids in need.

Oklahoma City schools start Monday and students in many classrooms are required to wear uniforms.

For some parents, that can be a tough expense to cover on top of everything else.

That’s why “Uptown Kids” at Classen Curve donated more than 500 pieces of clothing to “Sharing Tree,” a local charity.

“There’s a lot of budget cuts for the schools this year and we though out way that we could help out would be to give something to the schools that might need help,” Carolyn Goldman, with Uptown Kids, told NewsChannel 4.

“The more donations that we receive, that’s just more kids that we can help. Our budget is limited too, just like everyone else’s right now with economy the way it is, and so a donation like this will just allow us to stretch our inventory,” Donna Robison, with the Sharing Tree, said.

“Sharing Tree” provides school clothes for families in need through their Classroom Connections Program.
