13th Annual Lions Club School Uniform Swap

The Ysleta, Five Points, and Del Norte Lions Clubs are sponsoring the Lions Club School Uniform Swap taking place at Eastlake High School on June 24. The swap, open to families from all districts and schools, works like this:

Those who want first dibs at the exchange are encouraged to turn in their gently used, clean uniforms at one of the five locations listed below. In return, they will get a voucher that allows them to shop first on the day of the swap.
