JAMESTOWN – Officials with Jamestown Public Schools are looking for donations to keep a longtime resource for students running.

The Jamestown High School ‘closet’ is a place where students are supplied free of charge with items like personal hygiene products, coats, gloves, hats or school supplies that students might need.

School officials say students can confidential use the supply.

“We just helped a few students who recently suffered from a house fire,” said JHS Behavior Specialist, Bonnie Schnars. “Our biggest need is socks and underwear, but hygiene products like toothpaste and toothbrushes, deodorant and soap, non-perishable food items, and clothing for high school kids are also really needed.”

The ‘closet’ was started around eight years ago, primarily from staff donations.

If anyone is interested in donating, they can drop off contributions at Jamestown High School.
