The mobile closet operates from a trailer that travels from school to school in Madison County to drop off clothing, toiletries and learning supplies to students whose families need them. financial assistance.

Executive Director Hilary Gould says they desperately need to stock up for the next semester.

“We’ll take your lightly used clothes – new, but slightly used, that’s fine. So if you’re cleaning out your closets to put in the new stuff you received for Christmas, we would love to have the extra closets, ”Gould said.

They are also preparing to reopen the locker rooms in their Leeman Ferry warehouse in January. Rooms offer a free way to stock individual wardrobes.

“Customers across Madison County who qualify for our programs can book an appointment and come shopping. Adults can come for their groceries every 6 months, children every 3 months and each person can choose for themselves around 40 items, ”she said.

Gould adds that they are asking for items ranging from infants to the elderly, as the pandemic has resulted in a wave of new customers.

“We have hundreds of people in Madison County who are counting on us to return to these locker rooms as soon as we reopen. We’ve had calls before so we want to make sure these rooms are stocked and ready to go. It’s essential for adults, it’s very important for children, ”she said.
