Local Entrepreneurs Donate Back-to-School Clothing | Local News


CHINA GROVE – A local clothing company has donated more than $75,000 worth of clothing for students returning to school.

Josh Jackson of High Point and Grayson Haff of China Grove founded Meripex Apparel as college freshmen in 2015. With the school around the corner, they felt it was a great opportunity to donate some of their shorts, pants and other clothing to local missions and organizations. Meripex Apparel has donated to Baptist Children’s Home of Thomasville, Boys & Girls Club of Cabarrus County, West Rowan High School, Rowan Helping Ministries, and Prevent Child Abuse Rowan. Over the past week, Josh and Grayson have donated more than $75,000 in new clothing as part of their back-to-school giving campaign.

“It’s been very exciting to partner with so many different community organizations in our back-to-school clothing donation,” Jackson said. “We are delighted that this collection is helping to provide essential clothing for children as they return to school in the weeks to come.

“In 2018, we launched our Giving Back campaign and worked across North Carolina to provide new apparel to organizations and missions in need. It has become a very important part of our company mission and we look forward to continuing to partner with organizations in our hometowns and states to provide new apparel.

Haff said they were happy to help. “It’s always important to remember where you come from and help your community. We are lucky to have the opportunity to give back this season and hope it helps us.

“Wow, we are blown away by the donation. We have over 400 children participating in our programs, many of whom are economically disadvantaged, so we are thrilled to be the recipient of such a generous donation and are truly thrilled to be able to bless our families with these wonderful garments.
