City sees increased need for school uniforms, community help sought
With the school year right around the corner hundreds of Baltimore city students are still in need of school uniforms, city school officials say, and the list is still growing. This time last year, city school officials said they had around 50 and 75 students on its uniform voucher list, but since August 1st the system received more than 575 requests.
Johns Hopkins University helped the school system provide school uniforms to about 170 city students, but many more won't be able to don their school colors on the first day. All of the students come from families who are experiencing some sort of financial hardship due to loss of job or other situation that has strained the family financially, the school system said.
