Did you know?

We have approved several Staff Grants already this year.

Spirit Wear

Are you waiting on a refund?

Our Spirit Wear chair has issued several refunds, but we want to make sure we haven't missed anyone! If you are still waiting on a refund, please reach out to spiritwear@teravistapta.com and she will help you out.


 

RRISD Clothes Closet is "hiring" and they are still need of donations!

They are "hiring" extra managers and, in a new role, assistant managers. Both are volunteer roles, with the top criteria being consistent availability for 2-3 shifts per month (2 hour shifts), and a welcoming, supportive attitude - especially with folks whose primary language isn't English (fluent Spanish is a big plus!). Managers have a key and the potential for duties outside regular hours (e.g., assisting with large donation deliveries), and assistant managers will only serve on-site during regular hours. Please reach out to Monica Welch (clothescloset@rrisdpta.org), if you'd like to join their fantastic team!


The items needed most are:

🩳 Boxer Briefs in all MS/HS sizes, especially Mens Large

🧦 Girls Socks in size Medium

🩳👖Little Boys Shorts/Pants in sizes 4T-7

🩳👖Shorts/Pants for HS boys, especially Mens 32-34 waist


👚👕👖🩳👗🧦 Plus, they will always take gently used school clothes for every child and size… they have room on their racks!


Don't have any of the items listed above? They have also developed an Amazon Wishlist that meets many of their on-going needs. Here's the wishlist link: https://bit.ly/SocksUndies

Helpful Tip: Selecting "Monica Welch's gift registry address" at checkout will send the items directly to the Clothes Closet chair, and will save you a delivery trip!
