As winter comes to an end in the next couple months * Please keep in mind we will be collecting gently used, clean winter outerwear items in October of 2017 for Mariann’s Closet at Spencer Schools. Last year was a huge success and we would like to continue this tradition. Mariann Maki was a beloved 4K teacher who lost her battle to cancer 5 years ago. Even though Mariann and Oskar never had kids of their own, Mariann loved to shop clearance racks and garage sales to find deals on clothes for her nieces, nephews, friends’ kids and kids at school in need. Kids outgrow coats, hats and boots so quickly! To keep Mariann's spirit of giving alive, it makes sense to trade and share outerwear your family no longer needs to help keep all Spencer kids warm next winter. Drop off gently used, clean winter outerwear items kids have outgrown at any of these locations October of 2017. Sizes can range from 4 year old to adult sizes that will fit high school students. Note: Donations will not be taken until October of 2017’', but keep in mind when packing away winter items this spring.
