We can use your help in staffing the Clothes Closet. Please read the information below and sign up on the SUG if able. Make sure you say LHHS in the comments.
The RISD Council of PTAs Clothes Closet provides clothing for RISD students in need so they can feel comfortable, confident and ready to learn! Students are referred to the Clothes Closet by their school counselor or nurse, and receive a full wardrobe of clothes. The Clothes Closet accepts donations of clothing, sizes 3T to adult XXL, that is cute, current and free of holes, stains or much wear and tear. The Clothes Closet also accepts well-loved clothing and textiles, but that should be placed in a separate bag and boldly labeled "World Wear".
We served a record 650 students last year and fully expect that number to remain the same.
Mondays will continue as receiving donations and sorting. We will take requests from the schools, have volunteers pack clothes and deliver on Tuesdays.
All volunteers must watch the following videos prior to volunteering at the Clothes Closet.
