Scooping for Students: Local Ice Cream Shop Serves up Support for EVSC’s Hangers
What do you get when you pair delicious hand-dipped ice cream and local celebrities? A super fun way to raise money for a vital part of hundreds of Evansville students. I'm talking about the 13th Annual Scooping for Students event!
What is Hangers?
Hangers is a program of the EVSC Foundation that serves as a clothing resource center for all EVSC students. When I was in school, some students were offered free or reduced-priced supplies. Hangers goes way above and beyond that, filling the needs of students that you might not even think is an issue.

Not Just Clothing
When a student is in need of the services from Hangers, they have the opportunity to shop for school uniforms and spirit wear. But that's just the beginning. Students who are in need of personal hygiene products like shampoo, soap, deodorant, feminine products, and other essentials are given whatever they need. This can make a huge difference in a student's attitude, and build self-confidence.
Here is a list of the items are are currently sweating about having for our students: Hygiene, hygiene, hygiene! Even after we had several groups doing hygiene drives for us this summer, we are still out of men's 3-in-1 shampoo, women's shampoo, men's and women's deodorant, bar soap, full-size toothpaste, individually wrapped toothbrushes, and feminine hygiene pads. (pads only) Boys size 5, 6, 7, and 8 jeans and athletic pants. Girls size 7/8 and 10/12 long-sleeve t-shirts. Like the record heat, we are heading for record numbers of students in need. For a reference point, just 10 years ago, Hangers would serve about 900 students for the entire school year. We will have served more than 900 students by the end of August this year. We are open for donations from 8 a.m. to noon, Monday - Thursday.
