Colonial Closet


The Colonial Closet at MHS opened in late 2015.

Organized and facilitated by the school, its purpose is to support the MHS students who are struggling economically.

Some of these students are living on their own, working to pay their rent while going to school. All are in need of basic necessities like toiletries and simple food items.


  • Toothpaste/toothbrushes
  • laundry detergent
  • soap
  • deodorant
  • Feminine hygiene – maxi pads (no tampons)
  • *NEW Men’s underwear (boxer/boxer briefs in sizes small and medium)
  • *NEW Women’s underwear (sizes small and medium)
  • *NEW Women’s bras (size 34B and 34C)
  • *NEW Socks
  • Canned fruit (pineapple a favorite)
  • No oatmeal
  • No bedding

*NEW – bras, underwear and socks need to be new.  All other clothing donations do not.

If you are interested in helping out, donations can be dropped at the main office. Also cash donations are tax deductible and are used to buy certificates for groceries and to purchase items as needed.

We have had such a wonderful response from the members of our community. It feels good to do good!

Thank you!
