CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The Cape Girardeau Public School District is hosting a clothing distribution Tuesday, July 31 and Wednesday, August 1.

It only took about 30 minutes for clothing drive organizers to start running out of clothes.

The district has been gathering clothes to help families transition to the new dress code.

When the giveaway started, there were about 600 tops and 400 bottoms to give out.

This is in an effort to assist families who need help with providing clothing to their children suitable to the new dress code.

"We want to make the transition to the new dress code as easy as possible", said Deena Ring, Special Services Director and organizer of the drive.

Parents say they're grateful for the help because there is such a big need in the district.

The clothing distribution is taking place at the Cape Central Junior High School Fieldhouse located at 205 Caruthers in Cape Girardeau. 

The distribution runs both days through business hours.

Local clothing stores and national vendors are assisting and answering parents' questions regarding approved articles of clothing.

If you have any donations, you can still bring them to the district's office on Clark Avenue.

For additional information, contact Deena Ring at 573-335-1867.

The dress code, along with pictures of approved and unapproved articles of clothing, can be found on the District's website at www.capetigers.com.
