The Orbit – a closet full of hope

In September of 2014, our group volunteered to assist the Neenah High School staff in their creation of a school community closet, called The Orbit.  This crucial service now offers additional support for a growing number of students needing assistance with basic needs.  NMES volunteers painted, cleaned and supplied bins for storage, shelving, and organizational supplies in the space designated for the closet at NHS, and helped organize all donated items.  We also took up a collection of items, including personal care and hygiene products and non-perishable food items, and donated them to the closet.  In October, The Orbit opened to the student population and has become an instant success with many students being able to receive critical supplies.  NMES is ready to help with additional supplies or to help fulfill requests in ongoing support of this great NHS service.
