The Community Closet had a very successful month of January. In total, 86 off-the-rack items were adopted by students. Through this charitable program, students grabbed free items like winter coats, hoodies, and NW gear. The closet has also provided shoes, gym shorts, and hygiene products.

This year, the group added food distribution at parent-teacher conferences. It allowed parents to choose what foods and other items were needed. This form of adopting items has proven successful.
