Free Store Program
This promising practice highlights a Free Store program where a school has teamed up with several local partners to provide a safe and effective place for families in the community to access food, clothing, and hygiene products. A free store concept has been created in both the elementary and high schools in the rural area and the schools can now meet the immediate needs of the students and their families. Families have come to rely on the clothing exchange especially around winter clothing items such as snow suits and boots which can be quite costly.
