School Custodian Stocks 'Care Closet' For Homeless Students
On each school day, Carolyn Collins keeps Tucker High School in Atlanta, Georgia, tidy. But tucked into a corner of the school's cafeteria, is evidence of Collins' real commitment to the students: Her "Care Closet."
For the past three years, Collins, a custodian, has been collecting and distributing clothes, school supplies and even food to the school's homeless students, according to an article on the 11 Alive website.
"These are our babies," Collins said in the article. "They just want to learn. I just want to take care of them. Some of them are sleeping in cars, some in hotels. I'm trying to give them all they need in this closet."
Since the project first started, Collins has kept the closet stocked, often with money from her own pocket. She estimates she helps between 20 and 30 students a year.
The closet is stacked with clothes and necessities plus messages of inspiration and hope. Students take home the items they need and also leave knowing someone cares, the article said.
"I'm doing something for the kids every day," Collins said. "Every day. It's part of my job."
