Donate Gently Used and New Clothing

Hello Parents and Guardians, My name is Brooke Donohoe and I serve as the Bearden Middle School Social Worker. The Student Support Team here at BMS - School Counselors, School Nurse, and Social Worker - are partnering with the PTA to help support a noticed need in our school. There is no pressure to participate, but any donations of any amount are much appreciated. Over the years, our Team has noticed that when a student has an unexpected accident or emergency situation, we are not prepared to meet the need of simple clothing items like underwear, socks, pants, etc. because these items are not typically on-hand. As we try to reach parents, students are left sitting and waiting until a loved one can come to school with the clothes or other items needed. As a result of this need, the PTA and our Student Support Team are creating an emergency clothing closet. By shopping on the Amazon Wish List link below, you can actively help our staff support student needs. By shopping this wish list, items are sent directly to the school for ease of collection. Please use the school address: Bearden Middle School Attn: School Support Team 1000 Francis Road Knoxville, TN 37909 This closet will not necessarily be used for deliberate dress code issues or for clothes for daily use; we have other resources within the community that can be used to meet these needs. The closet will contain items such as leggings, sweats, socks, undergarments, feminine hygiene items, etc. Having these items on hand can help us shorten the amount of times students are out of class. Hopefully, by working together, we can help lessen the embarrassment, hardship, and stress that comes with having accidents at school. Thank you for your time and help to support this need at BMS. For questions, please contact PTA Parent Representative Reagan Womack email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thank you for your support,
