MADISON, AL (WAFF) -

Madison Rolling could be enjoying a lazy relaxing summer before heading off to her first year at Auburn University, but, she has a mission to complete.

"Before I left for College I wanted to kind of leave a mark on my community," she explained.

The teenager decided to create "Clothing for Confidence." She's collecting new and gently used clothes for kids K-12 to prepare them for the first day of school.

"Growing up my mom was always very excited and she would always take me to get a new outfit for the first day of school, and her reasoning was when we feel good in what we wear and feel confident. We're sometimes more likely to go outside our comfort zone and maybe talk to that kid sitting next to us who we normally wouldn't or speak up in class," said Rolling.

Rolling got her friends involved and they created boxes to distribute throughout Madison, and at the end of the month, she'll set up a special store and kids in need will only need a few dollars to shop. All items will cost just $1.

New or gently used clothes can be dropped off at the Madison City Public Library, Inside-Out Ministries, Madison City Hall, Dublin Memorial Park, or the Madison Chamber of Commerce/Hogan Family YMCA. Money donations are accepted as checks to Inside Out Ministries for Clothing for Confidence at 103 Gin Oaks Ct., Madison AL 35758.
