Student Needs Closet

 We take a holistic approach to education, on the grounds that academic problems rarely have academic causes. Thus, we address a wide range of needs that may be holding a student back from fulfilling their potential.

This has hitherto been on an ad-hoc basis, administered through the personal channels formed by one-on-one mentoring relationships. Now we are also building up a Student Needs closet, equipped with supplies and resources that our students may not have access to at home, so that a student can find what they need at any time. These needs range from sanitary pads and tampons to deodorant to food items.

Items needed for our Student Needs Closet include:

  • Soap

  • Toothpaste

  • Toothbrushes

  • Mouthwash

  • Female Hygiene Products

  • Shaving Foam/Cream

  • Body Wash

  • Lotion

  • Baby Wipes

  • Diapers

  • Deodorant

  • Non-perishable snacks (including fruit snacks, cracker sandwiches, apple sauce, juice boxes)

  • Tupperware boxes to transport food

  • Plastic cutlery

  • Plastic plates

If you have any items that you wish to donate please contact our Operations Manager, Eric Walker (eric.walker@projectrousseau.org)
