After a successful grand reopening in December, The Valley View Community Clothing Closet will be open monthly on the 3rd floor of the Intermediate Building. The next "shopping" night for free clothing will be Tuesday, Jan. 12 and Wednesday, Jan. 13. The Community Clothing Closet will also be open Feb. 9 &10 and March 9 &10. All shopping times are 4-7pm.
The Community Clothing Closet is open to everyone and all are welcome. This has been a joint effort between the Whole Child Advisory Council, community members, staff, and students.
Thanks to our community which has been so generous with donations! Some of our students and staff have helped to advertise, gather donations, and wash donated items. The Germantown Municipal Building and the Farmersville Fire Station were gracious and allowed us to place collection bins at their locations.
Most instrumental is the group of women who have led the charge and have worked together to create a wonderful resource for the community. They have created a department store vibe in the space so it will look and feel like a shopping experience.
We will have volunteers who can help pull items and bring them down for people who are unable to make it up the stairs. Due to COVID, everyone must wear a mask and maintain social distancing while shopping and waiting in line.
We know that many in our community are facing tough times. See our Resources for Families page for a list of community resources. If you are part of a group that provides help and support to families in this community, please reach out to Amanda Phillips to be added to the list.
