Donations of new or slightly used dress code-appropriate clothing will be redistributed among students in financial need, according to a news release issued by the district Thursday.

Donated items can include tops, bottoms, belts and shoes but must meet the guidelines of the dress code, which are posted online at www.capetigers.com.
