The Champions’ Closet at Brock Elliott School is again up and running.

The on-campus store consisting of gently used clothes for families in need received plenty of donations during the summer months.

Included were sizes fitting mostly toddlers, children and teens, with some coats and clothes for adults.

Since its inception nearly a year ago, the Champions’ Closet has relied on volunteers to help in the operation.

The cheer squad from Sierra High recently stepped up, helping organize the donated items.

“Due to the summer break, the Champions’ Closet was stuffed full with new donations and lots of unopened bags and boxes,” said Cathy Willenbrink, who is one of the parent volunteers.

She added, “We were overwhelmed at the many items that needed to be organized and folded.”

On Aug. 31, the group spent a several hours helping out store that’s free to the needy families via appointment.

“The girls had hung up over 300 items and had helped organize and fold hundreds of pieces of clothing,” said Willenbrink.  “They were amazing – It would have taken us days to do the work that these girls did in a couple of hours.”

Members of the local cheer squad have offered to help the Brock Elliott store when needed, according to their coaches.
