Spotsy schools storage site for homeless supplies named “The Treasure House”
Spotsylvania County’s supplies trailer for students and families that are homeless was named “The Treasure House” today.
School social worker Michelle Patton took suggestions from folks for the names and today students at Courthouse Academy got the honor of voting for their favorite. They picked this one a short while ago, Patton said.
The Treasure House is located in a classroom-style trailer behind Massaponax High School near the football field.
Spotsylvania County’s homeless students and their families can always use help. Anyone interested in donating can drop off the following items in a box in front of the trailer.
- Laundry detergent.
- Socks for men, women and children.
- Feminine hygiene products.
- Diapers and baby wipes.
- Gift cards for Wawa and Walmart.
Anyone with questions can contact Michelle Patton, Title I school social worker, at 540/582-1069, ext. 5606.
