About Our Community Closet
Palatine Assisting Through Hope (PATH) and the Northwest Suburban Council (NWSC) of PTA/PTSA are partnering with District 15 to provide all D15 students and their families with opportunities to be properly clothed no matter the season through the Community Closet.
The Community Closet is open one evening and one afternoon each month at Gray M. Sanborn School, 101 N. Oak Street, Palatine.For more information, contact any District 15 school or social worker, or contact your school’s PTA Health and Safety chair.
The Community Closet operates like a thrift store, with clothes available in sizes from infant through adult but the Community Closet items are free to our District 15 families in need of assistance.
Districts 15 families in need of free, gently used clothing can now be signed up by a teacher, social worker, or any certified staff member for an appointment to shop the Community Closet. Families can visit the Community Closet twice a year, but can only receive winter coats and new socks and underwear on one visit. (New socks and underwear are only available for children)
Donations and Volunteers Needed!
Donations to the Community Closet can be dropped off in donation boxes located in the main entrances at all District 15 schools. Receipt forms are available at each donation location. In addition to gently used clothing, donations of new pairs of socks and underwear in all sizes and styles are always needed, especially in the late fall and winter months when more families are accessing the Community Closet.
Each District 15 school should provide 2-3 adult volunteers this evening a year (see below).
Donations are always welcome and each District 15 school has a bin located generally in the front of the school for any/all donations.
For more information, contact any District 15 school or your school’s PTA Health and Safety chair.
