LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Rams are tackling chronic absenteeism in under-resourced communities by offering new clothing to motivate students to attend school.

Their Loads of Love program, in partnership with PacSun and the THINK WATTS Foundation, also will donate washer and dryer sets to 20 local schools.

This initiative aims to address the deeper issues that contribute to absenteeism, such as the lack of clean clothes, by providing both the means to maintain hygiene and the motivation to participate in school life.
