The Rotary Club of Kerrville-Morning (Morning Rotary) provided almost $800 in new clothes to the Ingram Tom Moore High School clothes locker.
The Ingram Tom Moore clothes locker discretely provides clothing to students in need as determined by the school administration.
Morning Rotarian, Mike Hunter, coordinated the project, and he with fellow Rotarians, Waverly Jones, Danielle Brigati, and Randy McClay embarked on a shopping spree at the Kerrville JCPenney store. They purchased a variety of clothing for men and women including hooded sweatshirts, long and short sleeve t-shirts, knit shirts, blouses, and sweaters, as well as essentials like socks and underwear. Waverly Jones shared how they were able to maximize purchases by buying clearance items. Hunter noted that some funds are reserved to purchase shoes and jackets on an individual, as-needed basis later this year.
“This is one of the many reasons we love the Hill Country and Morning Rotary; this type of community care for our kids is really something to be proud of. All of these items will go directly to kids in need. It could go to a student whose family has fallen on hard times or perhaps a student who lost everything in a fire or other disaster. Ingram ISD can’t thank Morning Rotary enough for the ongoing support and love they give our kids. They are an amazing group of people!” said Ingram ISD Superintendent, Dr. Robert “Bobby” Templeton.
