Liberty County School System social workers organize an annual project each year to give back to the schools they service. This year, they decided to set up a school-uniform drive. 
The social workers said they were overwhelmed with the amount of participation and uniforms they received. 
Students were awarded with a dress-down day for their participation in the drive. 
The social workers said they received so many gently used uniforms that they were able to donate some directly back to the schools.
The remaining uniforms are being dry-cleaned and will be distributed to students in need July 29 in the board room at the board of education building. 
School officials said to look for additional information regarding qualifying for the donated uniforms.
