While the majority of charities that we feature through our monthly charitable giving program on Frameusa.com are nationwide charities; sometimes a local charity is too good not to share it with the masses. This is one of those charities.
Princeton Closet is one charity that we love to support and we do so through both monthly charitable giving such as this July and through our Fill The Truck Initiative.
It all started in 2010 when Susan Wyder, a former teacher in Princeton City Schools saw a missing piece in the students. She formed Princeton Closet inside an ACTUAL closet. The closet features basic items that she saw missing in the lives of the students at Princeton. Items such as clothing, food, and even school supplies. The closet is now located at the Princeton Administration Center. Principals and counselors from Princeton can refer families to the closet. They are then able to pick up a box to supply them with their needs every month.
One of the best part about Princeton Closet is that you don’t actually have to live within the Princeton City School District to be eligible to receive supplies. Wyder doesn’t want to ask who or where. If the closet doesn’t have a particular item or size that a family needs, Susan will purchase the items herself.
If you are interested in getting involved with this organization please contact Susan Wyder by Email. For the entire month of July 2021, $0.75 from every online frame order from frameusa.com will be donated to The Princeton Closet.
