* The Clothing Pantry is in need of good used kids shoes. Especially small sizes like 12, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Having used shoes on hand helps students who may have an emergency and need a pair of shoes right away. It help get them back to class quickly so they can focus on learning. Shoes may be dropped off at our front office. Thanks to a generous donation from the LC CREW we are able to purchase a new pair of shoes for students who cannot afford them. Thank you!
*If you would like to help meet needs at your school and in your community, you may sign up for the PURPOSITY APP. It connects users to current needs at Whitman and other schools in our School District. It’s a great way to help others. It has been amazing! Since November 2018 over #650 needs have been met in our School District! Needs range from clothing & hygiene items to beds.
*Our WHITMAN FOOD PANTRY is open Tuesday & Thursdays, 8:30-10:00am. At this time you will just pick up items & go. You will receive a food box, cold items & paper items. Our NEW location is in the Library building. We ask families to come directly to the door that faces 10th AVE. Please park on 10th AVE. There is a PANTRY sign on Door #20. If you are in need of food but unable to come to the school, please contact Jennifer Wallace.
*We accept perishable and non-perishable items as well as hygiene items. If someone would like to make a monetary donation they may do so to: LIFE/Whitman Food Pantry. Last month we handed out #28 food boxes. All donations are appreciated! Our Food Pantry has been running for 6 years, thanks to all of the community support.
If you have any questions or need help, please give me a call. I’m a helper at the School and I love connecting people to resources! We have such an awesome School & Community. Thank you!
