Every year Scholls Heights parents help make a difference in our community by donating time and gently used clothing to our Beaverton Clothes Closet. We Thank You.
The Beaverton School District provides free clothing for students from families with a limited income via the Clothes Closet. The Clothes Closet is administered by the District Volunteer Services Coordinator. The center is open for operation every Wednesday during the school year and is staffed solely by parent volunteers from District schools. The majority of the items in the Clothes Closet come from the Lost and Found of District schools and from our Clothing Drives. Every school in the district is responsible to staff one Wednesday throughout the year to help and work at the Clothes Closet. If you would like to volunteer your time and give back to the community, this is a great opportunity for you.
What do you do when you volunteer you ask??
There are two rooms at the Clothes Closet. One room that is full of donated clothes where volunteers put clothes on hangers, organize donations, & sort out unacceptable donations. And another room where volunteers help shoppers find what they need and check them out. Clear instructions are provided by district personnel upon arrival. Your help is much appreciated!
