Supplies for homeless students running short

Supplies are running short to aid homeless students and their families, Spotsylvania schools social worker Michelle Patton said Thursday.

The division keeps what it calls a “Treasure House” at Massaponax High School to supply necessities countywide, but with the ever-increasing needs, the box is becoming depleted.

Below are the current needs.

  • Laundry soap
  • Children’s socks and underwear
  • Feminine hygiene items
  • Gently used children’s clothing
  • Shampoo and conditioner

The Treasure House is located in a classroom-style trailer behind Massaponax High School near the football field. Items may be left in the brown drop box located outside the trailer.

Massaponax High School is located at 8201 Jefferson Davis Highway, Fredericksburg, Va. 22407.
