South Lakes High School Clothing Closet Opens Today

The South Lakes High School Clothing Closet is asking for new and gently used clothing to help stock up today (Dec. 20) during its grand opening.

The store aims to have clothing available for its students “free of charge and of judgment,” according to the South Lakes High School Parent Teacher Student Association.

School leadership and the Distributive Education Clubs of America created the store to build off of the success of the food pantry at the school, according to the SLHS PTSA. Reston Now previously reported that since April 2017, the pantry has filled more than 2,500 orders and weekly order averages are also increasing.

Locals can drop off new or gently used clothing from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. today and tomorrow (Dec. 21).

The following clothing items are needed:

  • jackets
  • shirts
  • pants
  • “interview attire”
  • school spirit clothing
  • warm weather clothing

Drop-offs will be accepted in the main office at South Lakes High School (11400 South Lakes Drive).
