Tabby's Clothesline Needs Help

Keep Tabby’s Clothesline in mind as you make room in your child’s closet for the new school year. 

Many families are completing their back-to-school shopping with new outfits and backpacks to kick off the year. Marietta City Schools is also preparing to welcome Tigers back into its academic buildings in less than two weeks by staff training, classroom preparation and restocking supplies needed to remove barriers and facilitate learning. 

But, one of those resources relies upon community support to keep children in school during the day.

"We are in need of specific new and gently-used supplies in Tabby’s Clothesline," shares Attendance and Home Services Coordinator Brittnany Schaad. “From our youngest Tiger to our oldest Tiger, the closets allow families to stay at work and keep students in school without major interruption.”

Tabby's Clothesline is a community-driven free closet program available at all three elementary buildings and at Marietta High School. School-appropriate clothing, hygiene products and school supplies are available on demand for students during the school day.

Individual donations of one to five items at this time will be accepted by building staff from 9 to 11 a.m., Aug. 15-18. 

“We know how generous our community is, and are thankful for the continuing support we receive,” said Schaad. “And we value and appreciate the time of the building staff who help organize the items within our buildings.”

Due to limited space, Tabby’s Clothesline also accepts monetary donations to support the ongoing mission of keeping kids in school. 

Checks may be dropped off or mailed to the Marietta City Schools district office at 111 Academy Drive. 

Please make checks out to Marietta City Schools, and note "Tabby's Clothesline" in the memo section.
