How It Makes A Difference

Many of our students face clothing insecurity - which means they cannot regularly access clean clothing that makes them feel good and fits them right. A fresh set of clothes, a clean pair of socks or a new pair of shoes can make a world of difference to a student in need. The best part is that our Closets are permanent, in-school resources, so our students can visit the Closet and choose the clothing they love and feel great in!
