Please WASH & RETURN Clothing

We had a good supply of clothing for students to borrow when the need arises... But it is dwindling quickly!

* PLEASE WASH & RETURN BORROWED CLOTHING. * 

If you have sweatpants especially to donate, they are still our greatest need.  Donations may be left in the school office. Thank you!!
