Poverty doesn’t take a Summer Vacation

In fact, summer can mean more challenges for the 47 million men, women and children living in poverty in the United States. Children do not have access to free and reduced school lunch programs causing higher rates of food insecurity. Child care costs and higher utility bills can stress family budgets. Homeless individuals trying to escape hot weather lead to increased activity at shelters. Summer employment may be available but work appropriate attire is needed. And all need clothing suitable for warmer weather.

At Dignity U Wear, we will spend the summer supplying brand new clothing to our partner social services agencies and preparing for back to school deliveries, our busiest season.

Please join us as we continue providing basic clothing necessities for the most vulnerable in our communities by making a donation today.

CW17 Volunteers at Dignity U Wear

In honor of Nexstar Broadcasting’s 20th Anniversary, the Jacksonville, FL station, WCWJ CW17 spent an afternoon volunteering at Dignity U Wear.

20 years ago, the Nexstar Broadcasting Group launched as a standalone station in Pennsylvania. The company, under the leadership of Perry Sook – chairman, president, and CEO – has expanded to serve millions of people across the United States.

Sook says he has always believed that serving the local community is at the heart of Nexstar’s mission. Nexstar employees are known for giving back to their communities – and the company backs that commitment. “With June 17 being our 20th anniversary, we set a goal of 20,000 hours of community service. The company will support that by giving every employee that registers five paid hours of time off to do service in the local communities,” Sook said. That’s 20,000 hours and $20,000 to local charities distributed by Nexstar’s stations.

Dignity U Wear was thrilled to welcome 20 WCWJ employees to our warehouse where they painted, did yardwork and sorted/inventoried donations of brand new clothing. Thank you Nexstar for all you do in the Jacksonville community and around the country.
