Jeff Rayden, Marketing Director for IZOD schoolwear announced that his company and J.C. Penney would be renewing their pledge to donate school uniforms for U.I.S.D. students of all ages. Thanks to a partnership with parent company Global Brands Group and Walmart, this year's donation will reflect a 60% increase over the past year's donations. This year, a total of 1,600 school uniforms valued at $30,000.00 will be donated to UISD students. In addition, all parents who have a UISD email account will receive a J.C. Penney discount coupon in their email box. " I am very pleased that we have been able to increase this year's pledge, thanks to the IZOD/JCPenney partnership and additional support from the George/WalMart program. As associates, we are very pleased to donate these uniforms which help students and their families", said Rayden.
