Over 500 Bismarck / Mandan Teens Heading to School With New Clothes Thanks to YouthWorks and You [PHOTOS]
More than 500 young men and women showed up to Bismarck High School for the 4th annual 'We've Got You Covered' clothing giveaway on Thursday (Aug 13).
The mastermind behind the event once again was the area's leading young persons' support center YouthWorks, with the Townsquare Media family backing their dedicated efforts.
The clothes filling the gymnasium at the high school was collected over two separate clothing drives in March and July of this year, with Plato's Closet in Bismarck the major drop off spot and providing a huge amount of support with sorting and organizing the clothes for the drive.
Area youths were allowed to take whatever they needed for the upcoming school year. The vast majority -- a good 90% -- of the clothes given away were collected during the clothing drives from everyday people just like you, donating what was in their closet at home.
Thank you to everyone that donated, and thank you to everyone who came out tonight to get what they needed for the upcoming year! We couldn't do this without each and every one of you!
