Casa de los Ninos in need of summer clothing, school uniform items

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -  Many schools in the area will start this week or in the coming weeks.  

There is a need out there for children in a local shelter who are getting ready to go back to class.  Casa de los Ninos is looking for summer clothing and school uniforms for children.  

They say several months of a full shelter have nearly depleted their supply of clothing for the warm weather.  The shelter has more than 40 children who usually arrive with just a stuffed animal or blanket, wearing only the clothes on their back. 

Casa says for many of the children this will be the first time they have ever had a new shirt to wear.  

Here are a few of the items they need - school uniform items, tan pants and shorts, collared shirts in navy or burgundy sizes 7 to 12, as well as summer clothing from size 0 to 18, like T-shirts, shorts and light pants.  

The items can be dropped off at the 4th Avenue and Speedway office (1101 N. 4th Avenue) Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
