Teen charity, 1 Closet and high school senior, Laura Graham are helping to change the lives of foster teens, those living in youth shelters and teenagers who have aged out of foster care. This growing youth based charity has now partnered with Newark Memorial and Moreau High School each holding ÔteenÕ clothing drives.
Graham focuses on gently used clothing basics; jeans, T-shirt, athletics, and warm wear only, while donations help teenagers return to the classroom with confidence! Donations remain local benefiting; Alameda Child Family Services along with California School for the Deaf and various social service agencies.
