Mrs. Goins Strickland from Pembroke NC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flossie's Closet

My students need an organized space to select clothing, food, and supplies. The garment racks and hangers will be used to hang up the clothing and the shelving will be used to store the food and toiletries.

My Students

At our middle school we have a lot of children in poverty. 100% of the population receive free lunch. Students are faced with many issues even before they come to school.

Many of our students come from single family homes, foster homes, or living with relatives.

This is due to the rampant drug abuse in our area. Children are being neglected due to their parents' substance abuse. Many are living in a situation where they are not supported and loved like they should be.

When students come to school and do not have the essentials they need to learn in the classroom, we try to accommodate their need so that they can learn. No student should have to worry about not having enough school supplies or if their clothes are tattered. Together we can!

My Project

Flossie's Closet is a student-driven program that accepts clothing, supplies, and food donations in order to provide items free of charge to our students in need. The shelving and racks will organize the space.

Items included in these closets may include: underwear, socks, shoes, pants, shorts, shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, toiletries, food and school supplies.

It will house our Backpack Program, which gives students a supply of food for the weekend. The closet is located in an unused private room on campus and will be a permanent resource for student with needs. Students are given access to the closet with a trusted adult and is restocked on a regular basis.
