Purpose

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

How it Works

Families will be confidentially referred by a school representative (Nurse, Counselor or Family Specialist). The representative will provide a voucher for each qualifying student in the family. The family will be able to "shop" (no cost) at the Clothes Closet for the following items: 5 tops, 5 bottoms, 5 new socks & 5 new underwear (per semester), and 3 coats or jackets (per school year).
