Community Improving the World
With inflation on the rise, money has become tight, especially for families with children in school. Chrissy’s Closet, named after longtime College Station ISD employee Chrissy Hester, is a local nonprofit organization that works to provide College Station ISD students, families and staff with clothing and personal hygiene products. Director of Student Services, Chrissy Hester, says at Chrissy’s Closet, they strive to make families feel like they are shopping at a store without the expensive price tag.
