Welcome to the AJ Comfort Closet!
What is the Comfort Closet? It is a service that provides our students in need with clothing, food, and hygiene products.
Where is the Comfort Closet located? The closet is located in the Health Center and provides these needs to the students throughout the year at no cost to the students.
Who can use the Comfort Closet? 42% of the students here at AJCHS live in poverty, meaning that 206 students may be in need of resources. The donations we receive right now are going to around 22 students.
How does the Comfort Closet operate? The comfort closet runs on donations, and is running out of food and hygiene products for the students who are using it. With your help, we will be able to provide to all students in need.
