Students at Horseheads High School will be wearing some department store fashions without paying department store prices.
The school held its first-ever Raider Remix clothing drive initiated by English and psychology teacher, Darby Thompson.
The goal is to make sure students have access to clothing when the cost of new clothes is out of reach. Everything is donated from the local community, locker clean-outs and even Thompson herself.
“I see kids in school everyday that I teach and they don’t have extra clothes or they need clothes or could really use this more than I could,” Thompson said. “I wanted to create a place where I could bring the extra clothes in to people who would need those extra clothes.”
Thompson says she plans to have gowns and suits next year in time for prom to help those who cannot afford the luxury of new attire.
