BSMS Scottie’s Closet
October 24, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Scottie’s Closet will be open for business on Saturday, October 24, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Ballston Spa Middle School cafeteria.
This annual event provides free gently used clothing, books, coats, and shoes to about 300 students, families and community members. It is organized by Middle School social workers Gaylen Wichrowski and Christine Jones, along with numerous parent representatives, school and community volunteers.
All of the items donated by the school community to Scottie’s Closet are provided free to students, families and members of the community who benefit from those items being “recycled”.
“This is truly a great event that demonstrates a strong partnership between the school and the community. Our building strives to increase service learning opportunities, as well as community involvement and support in the school, and this positive event confirms how everyone can come together to provide for the needs of our students and families,” stated Principal Pam Motler.
All families in the school district are invited to come and shop for gently used clothing and books. Everyone who attends will also have the opportunity to be awarded a gift basket or gift cards.
This annual community event would not be possible without the tireless efforts of school and community volunteers who donate, sort and merchandise all of the items in the cafeteria. Please contact the Ballston Spa Middle School for additional information at 884-7200.
