Rachel’s Challenge: What is Rachel’s Closet?
Dana: The closet is a project that the Friends of Rachel Club decided to do in order to help other students. It really developed into what it is because of their ideas and the way they thought it would best serve students. We really never dreamed of having something like this but it has evolved into a really great thing, not just for the kids who are in need but also for the kids that work in the closet. They can be a part of it by donating things and helping others. It just created a really nice kind culture here. As a school counselor, I’ve never seen this type of culture before. This is a really unique thing. It’s really one of the best things that I’ve done as a school counselor and working with groups of kids.
