About Classroom Closet
Who we are:

We know teachers dip into their own pockets to supplement their students’ needs. By providing the Classroom Closet, we can do our part in preparing each student for the competitive world they face in and out of the classroom.
How you can help:
ACE has the ability, with the support from the community, to directly affect our schools in Alamance County. Supply drives, monetary donations and volunteer hours can positively impact our goals at Classroom Closet. The majority of our supplies come from the generosity of people like you.
