Hi WILDCATS, The RISD Clothes Closet needs our help!
The RISD Council of PTAs Clothes Closet provides clothing for RISD students in need so they can feel comfortable, confident and ready to learn! Students are referred to the Clothes Closet by their school counselor or nurse, and receive a full wardrobe of clothes. The Clothes Closet accepts donations of clothing, sizes 3T to adult XXL, that is cute, current and free of holes, stains or much wear and tear. The Clothes Closet also accepts well-loved clothing and textiles, but that should be placed in a separate bag and boldly labeled "World Wear".
Each school in RISD is asked to help at the RISD Clothes Closet to keep it running. Volunteer shifts listed below for LHJH & LHHS parents are available for Sorting & Restocking (MONDAYS), or as a Shopper or Delivery Person (TUESDAYS). Please sign up for a shift below.
- Sorting, Shopping and Delivery Volunteers:
The RISD Council of PTAs Clothes Closet is located at 1239 W. Belt Line Road in Richardson, and donations can be dropped off by anyone on Mondays from 9:30am-12:00pm.
RISD PTA requests that all volunteers who sign up to work at the Clothes Closet have completed their RISD Volunteer application and indicated RISD PTA Clothes Closet as one of their "schools.": https://risd.voly.org/
