"Often times, working families have a hard time making ends meet. "I went through this, I understand the need," said Kristan Nigro, a kindergarten teacher at Schorr Elementary who started a "giving closet." There's food items in the pantry and toiletries like toothbrushes, soap, laundry detergent and contact solution. Kids can discreetly get what they need throughout the day and get back to learning. Kids and their parents can also use the giving closet after school. Nigro uses DonorsChoose.org to help fund the giving closet, "There should never be any embarrassment, we're a community. We rise together and fall together."
