Starting School in Style
SSIS is a non-profit orginazation giving underprivliged Norristown girls, grades 5 to 12, an opportunity to shop for and receive, at no cost, up to three complete outfits, including accessories, for the start of the new school year. It was conceived by a group of Blue Bell neighbors upon hearing that many Norristown girls are forced to go to school in the same clothing every day.
SSIS collects gently worn and new outfits from concerned families and merchants to create an inventory to give the girls a unique self-selecting shopping experience. The girls select and coordinate their own outfits in a mall-like environment
