For more than 20 years, The WORKS clothing store (a Shoreline PTA Council community resource) has provided free, high quality, gently used and new children’s and teen clothing and hygiene products. Every year, The WORKS serves more than 1,000 Shoreline School District students with basic needs to support success in school.
Since 2007, The WORKS has been housed in the three portables on the west side of North City Elementary. We recently learned that the portables will be removed this summer when the North City campus is used as a transitional school site.
The WORKS is actively looking for a new home beginning this summer. With the support of the District, PTA Council is creating a Task Force to ensure the long-term sustainability of The WORKS.
Can you help? We are just beginning the relocation plans and are actively recruiting community volunteers with a variety of skill sets, such as retail, space planning, legal, marketing, and fundraising. There is an organizational meeting set for Thursday, March 8th at 7pm in the PTA Council Office inside the Shoreline Center (Richmond Room, 18560 1st Ave NE).
