Every December, the Shoreline Rotary takes a group of students from a local elementary school shopping for winter clothes. Because of COVID, they weren't able to do this in 2020 so they donated the funds to The WORKS. We have been using the funds to buy cute and cozy tops and bottoms. We are so excited to hang new items with tags in the store and families are very grateful to be able to pick out brand new clothes! We've got more money to spend so we'll post more photos soon! Thank you Shoreline Rotary for this very generous gift! We are grateful for your continued support!
The WORKS is now open on Wednesdays from 6:30pm - 8:00pm. Due to social distancing requirements, families must make a reservation to shop in advance at tinyurl.com/works2020.
If you would like to donate, we will be accepting donations of clothing and shoes on Wednesday nights 6:30pm - 8:00pm. No appointment is necessary to drop off a donation on Wednesday nights. We ask that clothing donations be in kid sizes 4T - 16 or adult sizes XS - 3XL that is appropriate for middle and high school students. Clothing should be in great condition with no holes or stains.
The WORKS clothing room provides high quality, clean, gently used children’s and teen clothing to Shoreline School District families. Shoreline families experiencing economic hardship can bring their children to “shop” for gently used, stylish clothing.
The WORKS is also part of the Back to School Consortium and supports the annual Back to School (BTS) event to ensure students receive new socks, underwear, and hygiene products for a great start to the new school year.

The WORKS is run by a committee of PTA volunteers representing many different schools throughout the Shoreline School District. They are supported each Wednesday by volunteers from local PTA units. Each local unit signs up to assist 2-3 Wednesdays during the school year. For this year’s schedule see Local PTA Schedule (updated 9.28.19).
PTA volunteers must read and agree to the Volunteer Guidelines before volunteering on site at The WORKS. A Volunteer Agreement must be filled out, signed and turned in the first time one volunteers each year. You can contact the Volunteer Coordinator to confirm you have an agreement filed for the current year.
Youth Groups & Community Volunteers The WORKS has many opportunities for groups to assist on special projects throughout the year. Sorting and packaging product drive items, restocking the clothing room, helping set up for special events are some of the ways groups can participate. To arrange for your group to volunteer please contact the Volunteer Coordinator - Jill Steinberg, email@example.com.
FAMILY SERVICE CHAIRS Each local PTA's Family Service Chair is the liaison with The WORKS committee. Local PTAs are provided each year with current poster, newsletter article and contact information. The WORKS committee works with the Family Service Chair to distribute information to local school families about the service and about donation needs. See Manual.
