TES Kids Closet:
Pam Peak Meade shared: Hello PTO Members
It has been a while for a post from the TES Kids Closet.
Over the past summer the closet space size had been reduced. In doing this it is necessary to carry items for the K-6th grade classes only; children sizes 6 to 18.
From time to time there will be an outreach memo for specific items needed versus large donations of various items.
Your generous donations over the past few years have been greatly appreciated and distributed to many children.
We request that all donated items be:
*School dress code appropriate
*In NEW or LIKE NEW condition
Things we look for ALL YEAR ROUND for boys and girls:
*Jackets and warm weather wear
*Shoes- usually youth size 2 to young adult size 7
*Gym type shorts
*SEASONAL items (Holiday, Concerts, Dances, Grandparents DInner etc):
*Dresses- especially for special occasions
*Dress wear for boys
The Kids Closet clothes are used for daily needs like little accidents at school to helping with more specific needs for kids.
If you have a specific request or need please talk with a TES school administrator or teacher and we will try to help.
We stress that the clothes are not only for kids with needs but also for clothing exchanges of sizes etc. for any child in our district.
THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR GENEROUS DONATIONS
SHARING IS CARING

Not Strictly Toledo2: The Chip Guy

Read the FAQ page, check to see if a distro is scheduled, and head over to the warehouse.
Richard The Chip Guy says: Be kind to the volunteers, listen to the traffic guy, don’t show up early and don’t park at the neighboring homes across the street. Share.
