For students to succeed, they need their very basic needs met first. ALL students deserve the right to feel good about themselves and have their basic needs met in the greatest possible capacity.
I would like to start a Care Closet at my school to help improve our school community and organize a space where supplies and necessities are abundant. Any student who may need any of these items will be able to shop free of charge with dignity. This care closet would provide students with basic needs like uniforms, personal care items, and easy-to-prep meals and snacks they can take home.
There are hundreds of thousands of children in Buffalo. This project will help some of these children feel awesome and confident about themselves. The students would have one less worry in their world knowing that they can shop the Care Closet whenever they need to.
