THE WHAT

What in the world are the Comfort Closets? don't worry. you aren't the first person to ask. We get asked this question all the time. Sure, we have closets available in several different schools that are stocked with everything a student might need. From school supplies to hygiene items and everything in between. 

but the comfort closets are so much more than than just a stocked closet. so what else do we do?

 

> we provide food through our backpack program. each Friday over 220 students are sent home with a backpack full of food for the weekend.

 

> We host book giveaways. you should see the smiles on everyones face as they pick out their brand new book.

 

> we do annual shoe drives to kick off the school year. in 2019 we provided enough shoes for 200 students to start the school year with a new pair of shoes.

> last year we kicked off our first coat drive and were able to help keep over 60 students warm.

THE WHY

as a teacher, Shaunda Davis saw needs arise for her students each and every day and then soon realized it wasn't just her students. students from kindergarten to 12th grade were in need and something needed to be done. therefore the comfort closets were created with a plan to meet the physiological and safety needs of all students. we work to provide food, hygiene items, clothing, school supplies, and any other needs that may arise to ensure the success of every student.

THE WHERE
