Clothing Center

April 21, 2015
Shawnee Mission Area Council PTA is happy to announce our new clothing center home, next school year, will be located at Indian Creek Technology Center -   4401 W 103rd St, Shawnee Mission, KS 66207 

Due to all the great improvements within our district and the rebuild of Crestview Elementary getting underway, the Arrowhead building will now be home to those students during this time. 

The clothing center will be located in the gym at Indian Creek.  The gym has an outside entrance in the back of the building. 
We are looking forward to our move and in continuing the great services provided by the clothing center. 

Shawnee Mission Area Council would like to thank SMSD for their continued support of the clothing center, as well as the clothing center chairs, Jill Molina, Sarah Baker and Merrilyn Shobe, along with the numerous volunteers that ensure fruition of the clothing center. Their never ending work, support, and passion continuously drive this service. The clothing center makes a difference to over 1000 children and hundreds of families within our district! 

Remaining open days for the clothing center at Arrowhead are: 
Mondays: 9:00am-11:00am 
April 27 
May 4 
May 18 
Monday:  5:00pm-7:00pm 
May 11 

Donations, including ‘lost and found’ remains, will be accepted through Friday, May 22, 2015 – at Arrowhead. 

Further details will be forthcoming. 

Please share this information with your PTA members and school communities. 

For questions, please feel free to contact us. 

Thank you,
