Lost and Found Reminder

Please remember to check the Lost and Found for items your child may have misplaced. Every month or so, we post a message with pictures to our social channels to show you items that have been left. If the items are unclaimed, they are taken to the RRISD Clothes Closet and given to families in need. Read more about the Clothes Closet below.


 

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!
