The Success Closet is looking for new or gently used coats, as well as winter pants and waterproof mittens/gloves. The Success Closet, in partnership with United Way of Mower County, seeks to help students have access to the basic necessities of life so that they can focus on their education. Through this effort, more than 100 coats were distributed to students in 11 local schools last year.

Distribution:Success Closet distributions to students in need are conducted in a private and safe environment. Closets are maintained at area schools and are stocked by Success Closet volunteers throughout the year.

Do you ever feel good when you go shopping? That is how we want this experience to be. Contact: Success Closet Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Karem at 507-437-2313.
