WRE PTA 2018-2019 - RISD Clothes Closet
Hi WRE families! Each school in RISD is asked to help at the RISD Clothes Closet to keep it running. The RISD Clothes Closet provides clothing to students in financially challenging situations. This assistance allows the students to feel good about going to school, and they can focus on learning. The Clothes Closet is located in a remodeled house across from Richardson High School on Beltline, which allows privacy to the students and families in a clean, store-like atmosphere. It operates solely on clothing and monetary donations from the RISD families, community, and volunteers. They also provide new shoes and toiletries to each student who comes through.
Please consider volunteering a few hours at the RISD Clothes Closet! It is a rewarding experience you can do with a friend, or just go and meet other RISD parents there!
MONDAYS 9:30 am - noon: There are 4 Mondays when WRE volunteers are needed to help sort and restock the donations that have come into the Clothes Closet. Sign up for one of these Mondays, and it is a great chance to take a load of donations collected from family, friends, or yourself!
TUESDAYS (+1 THURSDAY) 9:15 am - 12:30 pm: There are 5 Tuesdays (and 1 Thursday Dec 13th) when WRE volunteers are REALLY needed to assist students in picking out clothing/shoes/coat for school during their one appointment. The Closet can't operate without our help. There will be a Clothes Closet person in charge to help with the logistics and show you what to do, and I will email you a little more information from the Clothes Closet about these appointments once you sign up. It is very important to let Norma Lisa Abegg know ASAP if you can't make your time slot. We will have to find a replacement to assist those student appointments during that time slot.
The RISD Clothes Closet is located at 1239 W. Beltline Rd (across from Richardson HS and next to RISD Newcomer Center).
Email Norma Lisa Abegg at [email protected] with any questions! You must complete the new VOLY volunteer background check to volunteer at the Clothes Closet. You can find a link to it on the WRE PTA webite at https://wrepta.membershiptoolkit.com/Volunteer. You do not have to do it a second time if you have already completed the VOLY form this year for WRE volunteer opportunities.
