New socks, new shoes and new underwear are three of the most requested items for many children living in Tustin as families are often unable to purchase these essentials for their rapidly growing children and put food on the table or pay rent. New shoes, new socks and new underwear are also the least donated of all clothing.

The Tustin Community Foundation has joined forces with the Assistance League of Tustin, the Tustin Police Foundation and Families Forward to conduct a community-wide drive to collect and donate these important items to Tustin Unified School District students in grades K-12 this summer, before school begins on August 12.
