FMS Hygiene Closet and Permission Letter

Story image 1_0

It has come to my attention that one of two students in the Fairfield Community School District is currently living under the poverty guidelines. That’s 50% of FCSD kids! While I do not know specifically which students are receiving assistance, I do know we have a high number of families who could use some help.

 

In an effort to help students, I have come up with the idea of a hygiene closet.  The goal of the hygiene closet is to provide students, free of charge, items that cannot be purchased with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) dollars.

 

I understand hygiene products are expensive to purchase, yet are necessary.

To sign up to receive bags, a parent or guardian must return a completed permission request form to me. Once the form has been returned, your child will be given a hygiene bag to take home. When these supplies are gone, your child will be able to order refills.

 

To re-order privately, students may log into their school google account and complete the reorder form in their google drive. Items will be discretely placed into the student’s locker. There is an option for parents to pick up the re-order from the school office instead of having student carry the items home. If students don’t wish to order refills online, they may stop by my room (FMS 108) and pick up items.

 

The ultimate goal is to have a hygiene closet, full of supplies, in all four FCSD buildings. As of right now, FMS will be the first building to begin distribution of supplies.

 

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding the hygiene closet, please contact Lisa Greenig at lisa.greenig@fairfieldsfuture.org or 641-472-5019 (FMS office number)

 

This community service project is provided by the generosity of your school staff, local businesses, service organizations, and community members. It is a joy to be able to share blessings with your family.

 

Respectfully,
