ROCK LOCKER - Youth Clothing Store

The Rock Locker exists because of two former Kingsley High schoolers seeing a need in our community, putting a plan together and  receiving support from businesses and other service minded organizations. The Rock Locker is managed by teens and volunteers to receive donations of and provide clean, gently used clothing, coats, shoes, and boots for K-12 students.  

This outreach has grown to also serve school counselors, parents, youth from other school districts, the Red Cross and the community as a whole.  

The Rock Locker is open Tuesday from 4:00-5:30 pm on scheduled school days, with other scheduled openings in times of need. (Schedule is subject to change)
