Urban Threads Helps Homeless Students in MPS
Milwaukee’s CBS 58 recently put a spotlight on Urban Threads, the LSS clothing distribution center that now serves homeless students through a partnership with Milwaukee Public Schools. Watch the news report, featuring Carla Schultz of Urban Threads, here.
Here’s something that wasn’t part of the news story: as the mom and daughter in the story shopped, Carla learned that the girl was set to graduate from eighth grade that very day. In addition to the clothes the girl selected, Carla found a dress and a pair of shoes that she could wear to the graduation ceremony. Then, Carla drove the student and her mom to the school, getting them to the ceremony on time.
