On-Campus Clothes Closet and Food Pantry ("Drop-In Center") for LHHS Students

 

There's a new resource being set up to help kids at LHHS that are in need and/or homeless.  The school counselors, PTA Community Outreach, and Communities In Schools are combining efforts to stock a food pantry and clothes closet.  This is located in the H building in what was formerly the nurse's area. This is separate from the RISD Clothes Closet.

 

This Drop-In Center is for the students on the LHHS campus.  When a student comes to the counselor and needs something to eat, or needs some clean clothes right now, the counselor will be able to help that student immediately.  We now have a designated spot, a small storage room in the H Building, to consolidate food and clothing donations.

 

We are looking for clothing donations of jeans, sweatpants, leggings, tops, jackets, new socks, new underwear, new sneakers, etc.  We can even take LHHS/Lake Highlands t-shirts and spirit wear. Just make sure it's CLEAN, school appropriate, and it's in good enough condition that you would let your kid wear it. 

 

Please bring your donations to the counselor's office in the H building and make sure it is clearly marked as a donation for the Drop-In Center. 

 

Thank you so much for your support! 


another option for giving to teachers

The PTA is requesting donations of $5-$10 gift cards to be used by our principal, Dr. Delich, throughout the school year to reward faculty and teachers.  Our goal is 100 gift cards.  

 

If you don't have time to get cards and drop off, you can Venmo our PTA President @Kiersten-Stockham or PayPal at KierstenStockham@gmail.com and she’ll go buy them.  No amount is too small!  The teachers really love the cards, gifts help morale, and the teachers feel appreciated.

 

You can also buy them or donate one you might not need or use. Leave the cards at the front office of the "L" building under the name of Kiersten Stockham or Sherry Hicks. 


RISD Clothes Closet Requests

  • Wire hangers (like from dry cleaners)
  • Current, clean clothing size 4T- XL Adult
  • "Contractor" style black trash bags
  • Full size deodorant
  • Men's and boys' athletics shorts and pants (esp. men's S, M and L and teen sizes)

At the RISD Clothes Closet, students are referred by their school counselor, they get an appointment time on Beltline Road, and they go with their parent.  They are given a week’s worth of clothing, underwear, a pair of shoes, and toiletries. 

 

Donations can be dropped off in the front office of the H bldg, or at the RISD Clothes Closet on Mondays (school days only) from 9:30 am - noon at 1239 W. Beltline, across from Richardson HS.

Mom's corner volunteers needed

Mom’s Corner offers a wonderful opportunity for parents to be hands-on in the high school. One day a month (or more if you would like) you will help the cafeteria staff in the snack bar. The snack bar is located in the student center (down the hall on the left from the library).

Sign up for the day of the month you would like to work throughout the school year.
