Wildcat Closet, the school’s annual clothing drive, collected clothes to display during parent-teacher conferences on Nov. 5 and 6, where all are welcome to visit the Media Center and shop.

According to Rose Fleming, English teacher, “anyone from the district is available to come in” and purchase these clothes. All visitors have to do is come in and take whatever clothing they need.

The program was started years ago by Anne Campbell, former athletic director. After her retirement, it was passed on to the National Honor Society, who now organizes the event. This is their second year in charge.

For struggling families, it’s “an opportunity to get some nice clothes,” said Fleming, also a sponsor for NHS.

The goal at Wildcat Closet is to “open up the school to the community,” according to NHS member Noah Franceschini, senior.

“Any of our students can take new or gently used clothes,” Franceschini said.

“We’re just trying to help out needy Plainfield School District families,” NHS member Rishad Dharani, senior said. Dharani said that clothes would be “one less worry” for these families.

“It’s really an amazing service for people in need,” said Fleming, “a benefit to the whole community.”
