The Problem

We are in the process of starting a care closet for our Wea Ridge Middle School students. On an almost daily basis we have students in need of clothes, shoes, toiletries, winter gear, etc. Our hope is to turn a small space into a closet for these items to be organized.

Our Plan

The clothing closet will be a new addition to our school so we will be in need of garment racks, shelves, bins, and hangers for organization. We will also be purchasing the items to fill the closet, which will include: clothing items, toiletries, and cold weather apparel. We hope to start the closet for our students as soon as possible, and we hope to maintain our supplies through grant opportunities and community donations.
