Hangers is a nonprofit, and they depend on monetary donations to make sure that can help every student that needs it. Sometimes, they are able to get a really good deal on winter coats or uniforms, and every little bit goes a long way.

  • Clothe a Student $150
  • Coat + Shoes $60
  • Uniform Bundle $5
  •  Socks + Undies (5 ea) $20
  • Hygiene Kit $8

Every year, for as long as I can remember, Baskin Robbins has hosted 'Celebrity Scoop Night', benefiting Hangers. It's always a fun time scooping ice cream and hanging out with EVSC staff and local celebrities. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has melted our super fun scoop event, but we can still raise money.

Here's a little inspiration for your donation:

I've seen the excitement of girls selecting the perfect sparkly prom dress. It's something that without Hangers and donations from the community, they simply would not have. It's not just about the clothes or shoes though, these kids are creating special memories that will last a lifetime.

Dave Schutte with Hangers sent me the following story:

A second grade student came to shop at Hangers today.   When we have time and a student has picked out one of our beautiful dresses or suits we do a little fashion show.

Today's fashion show was extraordinary.

This young lady today had picked one of the Macy's dresses.  She was so excited to show the rest of the staff her new dress. You see, her father is coming to town to visit and she has not seen her father since she was 2 years old.

As the young lady was showing us the dress she had on,  there was some hesitation in her voice, and she turned to Barb from the girls shopping area with a hopeful glance,

"Can I keep it?" she said.
