Northside Threads needs volunteers, donations

September 6, 2018

NISD Threads, a clothing closet that provides gently used clothing for NISD students in need, is in need of volunteers and donations.

All students should feel good about how they are dressed so that they can focus on learning in the classroom. NISD Threads is located at 5223 Blessing Road, San Antonio, TX 78228 and is part of the Family Engagement Center. While it is housed and overseen by the Family Engagement Program, it depends solely on donations and volunteers to operate. Donations and volunteers are needed every day, all year.

Donations needed include gently used clothing that meets NISD dress code and is appropriate for students aged 4-18, new packages of socks, and new packages of underwear.

Volunteer opportunities include washing, sorting, and labeling donated items; organizing clean and sorted donations; and replenishing items on the shopping floor.

NISD Threads is open Monday, Wednesday, Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and Tuesday, Thursday 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. Volunteers are needed during those hours. All volunteers are welcome such as student groups, NISD employees, and outside volunteers such as church groups, book clubs, PTA, etc.

Anyone interested in volunteering should complete an online background check and contact Juan Marquez at (210) 397-8930 or juan.marquez@nisd.net to schedule a volunteer time.
