A second Clothes Closet to serve the southern area of Leander ISD will open Oct. 9 at Four Points Middle School in Austin.

The LISD Council of PTAs, which operate the district's two Clothes Closets, is holding a grand opening for the south location at 9:30 a.m. Oct. 9.

PTA Clothes Closets offer gently used clothes, new underwear and new socks to students from prekindergarten to high school who live in the LISD boundaries, said Dannielle Romero-Vázquez, the LISD PTA Clothes Closet chair. No vouchers or income verification is needed for shopping. Each student can receive 10 tops, 10 bottoms, two pairs of shoes, new underwear, new socks, and two coats or hoodies per semester, Romero-Vázquez said.

People interested in helping the Clothes Closets can register to volunteer, donate items to either location or purchase items from the Amazon wishlist. Current donation needs include brand-new socks and underwear, Romero-Vázquez said. Needed sizes include girls and boys underwear (sizes 2-3T), girls socks (size small), women's socks (sizes small, medium and large), women's underwear (sizes extra-small, small and medium) and men's underwear (sizes medium and large).

Four Points Middle School is located at 9700 McNeil Drive, Austin. The Clothes Closet is on the north side of the school near the bus lanes. Hours of operation are:

  • 10 a.m.-noon Tuesdays

  • 4:45-7:15 p.m. the first and third Wednesdays

  • one Saturday per month (view the schedule here)


The north Clothes Closet in Leander is located at 324 S. West Drive in a portable across from the LISD Technology Center. More information about the LISD PTA Clothes Closet program is available online.
