Kindergarten teachers Vanessa Bateman and Heather Malick headed up the formation of the closet of clothes, shoes and toiletries at the school, which is a combined elementary and middle school.
It's housed in an old locker room where children can discreetly be taken to the room to "shop". This way it saves the children from embarrassment and helps them focus on learning without the additional stresses of life.
Bateman says there are 600 kids in the school and the closet it visited by about 10 students a week.
The comfort closet is stocked by donations from parents and local businesses.
