Education is a big expense for families, and some might not have the cash to pay for all the extra things that go with schooling. That is where THREADZ comes in.

Teens who come from low-income families, can pick out school supplies, hygiene products and clothes for FREE!

To get the freebies, teens ages 13 to 18 can stop by either of the two locations from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They have to attend Tempe Union, Tempe Elementary or be in the Kyrene School Districts, and show a school ID.
