Student starts charitable closet at Liberty Middle School

Gared SkorickLiberty Middle School student Gared Skorick, 13, got a taste of need — and generosity — when family troubles landed him in Anacortes with next to no possessions for a couple of months.

“It was a very rough time,” he said, but the school staff there was incredibly nice and helpful.

Once things settled down and he got back to Camas, Skorick said, he started noticing how needy some of his own peers are. So he launched the Liberty Community Closet — a clearinghouse of clothes, shoes and personal hygiene products such as soap, toothbrushes and shampoo for students who “need help like I needed help,” he said.

Donations of clothes, supplies and cash are always welcome at Liberty Middle School, 1612 N.E. Garfield St.; call 360-833-5850.
