Green House Service Project

Catie's Closet is an organization that provides clothing and toiletries to school aged children.  By providing an in-school resource of clothing and basic necessites to student living below the poverty line, Catie's Closet removes social stigma and improves school attendance.  

"Schools equipped with a Catie’s Closet give students living in poverty the ability to discreetly pick and choose the clothing and basic necessities they need, and are proud to wear. Lack of access to basic necessities is one of the top reasons for absenteeism.

By meeting students’ needs, Catie’s Closet boosts self esteem and motivates students to attend school and focus on their education."

Students from the Green House collected gently used clothing throughout the month of February and helped load the delivery van on Tuesday, March 7.  The drive was a great success!
