Clean Out Your Closet and Help Students

By Isabel on February 18, 2015//Leave a comment

Crawford High School Academy of Law is a 3 year program at Crawford High focused on educating students about the law and careers in the legal field. The goal is to graduate students from high school and prepare them to attend college and potentially pursue a legal career. At Crawford, 97% of the students are members of an ethnic minority and approximately 75% do not speak English as their primary language. The Academy of Law provides small class sizes, field trips, guest speakers, attorney mentors, and an internship.


Many Academy students cannot afford courtroom or office appropriate clothing to wear while participating in the San Diego County High School Mock Trial Competition and interning at local law firms in their senior year.


You can help by cleaning out your closet and your high school-aged family member’s closet and donating to the clothing drive. They need new or gently used professional attire, such as suits, slacks, dresses, skirts, and ties. Drop off your donations to the San Diego County Bar Association (SDCBA) at 401 West A Street, Suite 1100 in downtown San Diego by February 28, 2015. The SDCBA is also accepting financial donations to the Crawford High School Academy of Law Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization that will use donations to purchase inexpensive dress shirts, blouses, and shoes for students.


All donors will be recognized on the San Diego County Bar Association’s Academy of Law website at

    I have a large, and I do mean large, collection of professional clothing from my family, for both men and women. I see we missed the Feb. 28h cutoff date for your clothes drive which unfortunately I just learned about. If you are still interested in this, I would be glad to donate it for the two families. One man is a paralegal and the other is a lawyer and my daughter was and is a professional in her field. We even have a few appropriate shoes.
    Please email me if you can use these items. We would like to donate them to a good cause. Thank you.
