  • The Hays CISD Clothes Closet is temporarily closed as part of the district's emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Until the Clothes Closet is able to reopen, it will not be able to accept clothing donations. Additionally, volunteer activities, education services, and community events and activities are suspended. 

    The Clothes Closet hopes to be able to reopen to provide services in August prior to the start of the 2020-2021 school year.

The Hays CISD Clothes Closet

  • One of the enduring strengths of Hays CISD has always been a commitment to community, where the word neighbor still means something. The Hays CISD Clothes Closet opened its doors in 2018 to help students in all grades and at all campuses whose families or guardians are experiencing economic challenges. Having new or gently used clothing is important to self-esteem and the ability for children to focus on education. The people of Hays CISD are as generous and compassionate as they are strong. We don’t much like barriers, particularly those that keep kids from being kids. The clothes closet works every day to eliminate one challenge that families in financial distress often face. Shirt by shirt and coat by coat, we take care of our neighbors.
