A free store for CSISD students to obtain new or gently used clothes, shoes, coats, and personal hygiene items once per month.
Nearly 35% of CSISD’s population qualifies for Free or Reduced Lunch. This means 4,272 students may not have access to items needed to arrive at school clean, warm, and ready to learn. Currently, 78 of our students are considered homeless. Our goal is to help students and their families to feel positively about themselves, CSISD and attending school. The store is open every Monday from 4:00 - 6:00 pm (following school calendar holidays) at College View High School. Students and volunteers will work to help launder, sort, and organize the clothing. The best way to see up-to-date information is to visit the Chrissy's Closet Facebook page.
Why is it called Chrissy's Closet?
While working on plans for a place that would help countless students and families in our district- one name kept coming to mind- Chrissy Hester. From her time as an elementary and secondary counselor, to her principalship and till now as Director for Student Services, Chrissy has touched the lives of hundreds, if not thousands, of needy families over the past 30 plus years. There isn't a person in CSISD that helps more families and staff members on a daily basis than Chrissy does. We thought naming the closet after her would be a great way to honor a truly amazing woman for all that she does and all that she means to us in CSISD.
How will Chrissy's Closet work?
