ESSCA (Evanston School Children's Clothing Association) provides school clothing for all Evanston/Skokie District 65 K-8th grade school children in need. Each year we provide a full wardrobe of clothing and shoes to 700+ children. Our clothing assistance services are performed efficiently and discreetly and always keep the dignity of the families in mind.

You may request ESCCA services for a District 65 child by contacting his or her school health clerk, social worker or school principal. Contact information for your school's Health Clerk can be found HERE.

ESCCA always needs donations of gently worn clothing. Please click here for an updated list of items we will accept all year long. Donations can be dropped off on the west side of the JEH Building (1500 McDaniel Ave., Evanston) or in the collection bin in Haven's lobby. We are in current need of the following items:
