The Kloset

Thank you to our families, our staff and our Community Partners for supporting the Kloset with your generous donations of time, clothing and money. May you all be warm and toasty this winter season.

We get asked all the time, “What is the Kloset?”

The Kloset started with an idea. How do we address the growing basic clothing needs of our students?

The Kloset is located in the former Kindernook building in Galesville. What started several years ago with one room, has now expanded to three rooms. It is a place where care givers of our students in need can access toiletries, gently used/new clothing, coats, winter outerwear, etc. Thanks to the donations of gently used and new clothing from our school district staff, community church members and the multiple public and private donors, the Kloset has helped many of our students with their basic winter clothing needs.

Things have been very busy at the Kloset! We have been able to help many of our students. This winter season we have provided many students with boots, warm coats, gloves, mittens and hats. We try to keep warm winter clothing in stock.

If you are a student or family that could benefit from donated items such as coats, hats, mittens, boots, toiletries and clothing please contact Karen at Student Services 608-534-6394 x5900, Trempealeau Elementary. She will contact Tracy, Pupil Services Director, or Barbara, School Nurse, and they will assist the student/family.

The Kloset is available to anyone that is in need of temporary assistance with clothing. We don’t guarantee that we have all sizes or the desired color but we do have a good supply of warm winter clothing and outerwear for children/young adults. We no longer carry infant, toddler or adult clothing.

Donations accepted:
Clean, gently used or new winter clothing: Sizes 4-5 through teen.
Clean, gently used or new winter outerwear: Sizes 4-5 through teen.
New socks and underwear.
New toiletries: Toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, soap, shampoo. (scent-free is best)

We do not have the space for adult clothing, summer clothes or clothing that needs to be laundered or repaired.

Thank you for supporting the Kloset and the families served.
