A clothing boutique run by Mount Vernon students is celebrating one year of being open.
The Knights Boutique opened last May and is a 100% volunteer run store that allows students at Mount Vernon High School to “shop” for free clothes, school supplies, toiletries and more.
Students are allowed to take three items per visit.
Last June, the boutique was able to provide 11 students with prom dresses and accessories and six students with suits.
The Knights Boutique staff stressed the importance of donating appropriate clothing and other items. Clothes must be gently used and have no stains or holes.
“We don’t want our students to feel like they are getting the bottom of the barrel,” said Ms. Nicole Jones, administrative assistant and Knights Boutique supervisor.
The boutique is open during two lunch periods during the school day and after school on Thursdays.
DONATION REQUIREMENTS: Gently used/new items only, no stains or holes. Keep in mind, most students will walk out of the boutique wearing these clothes.
IN NEED OF: Metal racks on wheels, hangers, school supplies, toiletries, shoes, men’s clothing, winter clothes, razors, towels, and reusable water bottles.
TO DONATE: To donate please email Danielle Giusti at dgiusti@mtvernoncsd.org; Nicole Jones at njones@mtvernoncsd.org.
