Leading School Uniform Maker and Retailer Team Up To Donate $25,000 in School Uniform Vouchers

September 21, 2010

NEW YORK, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ — Responding to weak economic conditions that make it difficult for some families to afford back-to-school clothing, school uniform supplier French Toast and retailer Youngland/Kid City are combining to donate $25,000 in school uniforms vouchers to two New York City Public Schools. The two schools, which will each receive 500 uniform vouchers, are: P.S. 064 Pura Belpre in The Bronx and PS/IS 109 in Brooklyn.

The vouchers can be redeemed for French Toast School Uniforms at all Youngland and Kid City stores located throughout New York and New Jersey, and are valid through September 30. The vouchers were shipped to the schools for distribution late last week.

Charlene Alpay, VP Marketing for French Toast, said, “French Toast believes strongly that during this time of prolonged economic upheaval, it’s imperative that we step up and do what we can to help children and parents in need.”

Stephen Shamosh, President of Youngland/Kid City, said, “We interact with the public each and every day so we feel and hear the economic hardships they face. On behalf of French Toast and Youngland/Kid City, we hope this donation makes a difference to the people who need it most.”
