Purpose:

To help students (K-12) in our district, whose families or guardians may be economically challenged, by providing new and/or gently used clothing that meets the NEISD Dress Code.

Location & Hours of Operation:

  • 8758 Tesoro Drive (the old photo lab building across the parking lot from the NEISD Community Learning Center)

  • Beginning in January, the Closet will be open one day a week with the possibility of an additional Saturday each month. It will be closed on holidays based on the district calendar.

How it works:

Families will be confidentially referred by a representative, such as a Nurse, Counselor or Family Specialist, at their child’s school. The representative will provide a voucher for each qualifying student in the family. The family will be able to come shop at the Clothes Closet for a specific number of items of clothing each semester at no cost. These items may include: 5 tops, 5 bottoms, 1 jacket or sweatshirt, brand new socks & underwear, and 1 winter coat (one a year).

How YOU can help us:

  • Add a Clothes Closet Rep to your PTA
    (or add to Lost & Found Chair responsbilities).

  • Collect used clothing from the families at your school.

  • Hold clothing drives (jeans, coats, socks & underwear, etc.) at your campus, through your club, your scouting troop, in your neighborhood, etc.

  • Donate your Lost & Found clothing to the Closet each semester.

  • Bring items to Council meetings and to the location,
    once the Closet is open.

  • Volunteer your time to help at the Closet.
