Dressed and Ready to Learn

Project led by Georgetown Self Care Closet

About the project.

Georgetown Self-Care Closet operates out of Georgetown Jr/Sr High School located in Brown County, Ohio. Nearly 225 students in grades 7th-12th will be impacted by this Cause Connector project in that they will be able to receive clothing items and backpacks when in need.

“Dressed and Ready to Learn” will benefit families who are economically disadvantaged and struggle to afford appropriate clothing or backpacks for their children, as well as families who have working parents who may not be able to bring their children new clothes or backpacks in the case of an accident (ripped clothing, broken down backpacks, spills, etc.).  

FAO staff comments.

Programs like this one recognize that many factors contribute to a child’s educational success. When students do not have their basic needs met, learning becomes difficult or impossible.

This program helps students meet their basic needs, and it also helps to set students up for success in the classroom. Ultimately, this program can support better health and educational outcomes to make a lasting difference for students and ultimately strengthen whole communities.
