    • SMMS Student Pantry in Need of Donations

      SMMS keeps items on hand for students in need of personal hygiene/grooming items and food. The pantry and hygiene cabinets were established by donations from Donors Choose and has been maintained by some SMMS employees. There is a feminine item cabinet in each girls' restroom in case of emergencies. We appreciate any donations of unscented pads, antiperspirant/deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, unscented baby wipes, and individual serving size non-perishable food items that don't need to be cooked. We are also collecting reusable bags (ipsy, drawstring, etc.) in which students can discretely take items that they need. State law prohibits using classroom funds to purchase any of these items. We are grateful for any help!
