About the Closet

The Closet is an outreach program for families of the Blue Springs School District. Our goal is to serve all families in need within the boundaries of the school district. Children, birth through grade twelve, may receive 3 pants, 5 shirts, a winter coat/jacket, new socks, shoes, hat/gloves and new underwear.

The Closet is closed when school is not in session.
