Back to School 2023-24 Events
Thank you for your interest in Back to School events. All 2023 events have concluded. Please check back in August for events for the 2024-25 school year.
Did you know?
The Allentown School District no longer requires students to wear uniforms for the 2023-24 school year. YWCA Allentown is opening a teen clothing closet at The Perfect Fit to help students prepare for the fall.
Do you know a teen girl in need of school clothes? Request an appointment for her to visit the Perfect Fit and select a week’s worth of clothing to build her wardrobe for the new school year. Appointments are available beginning on August 21, 2023.
Do you have teen clothing to donate?
YWCA Allentown is accepting donations of gently used or new juniors clothing and shoes from July 1-August 15 to stock our back-to-school Teen Clothing Closet. Please call us at (610) 871-5060 to schedule a time to drop off your donations. Thank you for supporting our students!
Coordinating a clothing drive is a great project for your teen and is a wonderful opportunity for them to earn community service hours! Download a flyer to share here: Teen Clothing Drive Flyers.
All styles of juniors clothing are welcome; some of our students’ favorite brands include:
- abercrombie & fitch
- american eagle
- asos curve
- dr. martens
- forever 21

Our location is on the lower level, behind the building on the Allentown ArtsWalk. No appointments are necessary; please bring ASD IDs for all students. First come, first served.
