A Good Share! Pass it on:
I am sending this email to inform everyone of a service you have on campus called the “NU Clothes Closet”. This is a boutique like space, created in one of the portables, where students can come shop for FREE for clothing, shoes, backpacks, and toiletries. I have it open to the students every Thursday morning. I started the “Clothes Closet” 4 years ago when it was brought to my attention that there were NU students in great need of clothing. Self esteem is fragile in high school age students and clothing plays a part in how they feel about themselves. The “Clothes Closet” helps by providing clothing and footwear appropriate for high school students to those who can not afford it or who are in difficult home situations where self esteem is constantly broken down. Not only do the customers get one on one styling, but we also provide emotional support and a good listening ear. Many of the cases have brought tears to my eyes, but also tears of joy when I see the smiles and expressions of great gratitude from the students visiting the “Clothes Closet”. This has by far been the most rewarding project I have ever worked on! We have made the effort to keep the “Clothes Closet” fairly quiet for confidentiality issues. The “Clothes Closet” is largely funded by scrip dollars provided by NU Connection. I also accept gently used and new clothing donations that are appropriate for high school aged students. If you have a student you think would benefit from the “Clothes Closet” you can contact the nurses’ office for a referral.
