Dry Not Wet

Help me give my students the dry clothing they need. My students deserve to change quickly and get back to class and learn.

My Students

My students are dynamic! They come to school eager to learn and full of energy. My students have need of pants during the day. From bathroom accidents to spills, the need is never-ending.

The goal of this project is to provide my students with a clean item of clothing when needed Many parents are working or have no resources to get clothes to the school when needed.

With these clothing items waiting for use in my clinic, no student will miss excessive class time or be wet.

My Project

With a pair of shorts ready in my office the students can change quickly and return to class. No need to sit wet and wait for a parent to drive to the school and provide clothing. No need to sit and miss class time or even play time. My students deserve to be in class learning and being with their peers. No student should be sitting for long periods of time when clothing is needed Clothing becomes wet for many reasons and this happens daily in a school setting. Shorts ready to be worn would be ideal to put on and run back to class.
