Comet Care Center

About

The Comet Care Centers are material resource rooms for students in need.

  • They house donated:
  • school supplies,
  • clothing,
  • shoes,
  • outdoor wear,
  • personal hygiene products,
  • toys,
  • home products,
  • and other items,

that are given to students whose families don’t have the financial resources to support them.

Both Comet Care Centers are supported entirely by donations.

Locations

  • DDHS: The high school’s care center is for high school-aged students, and has items for “older kids.”
  • Phoenix Middle School: The middle school’s care center holds items for students from preschool through grade 8.

Receive an Item(s)

Parents or students in need of an item or items should talk with their school’s counselor to discuss the student’s need and to set up a time to visit the appropriate Comet Care Center.
