St. Mary’s Academy Uniform Closet

 
St. Mary’s Academy also has a uniform closet where families donate gently used uniforms that their children have grown out of; including pants, jumpers, tops, and ties. Current St. Mary’s families are welcome to come in anytime to see if any of the clothing works for their family. This is a free exchange and really a nice way to make room in your closet while helping out another SMA family.
