CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- Today some students at Crater High School spent their day sorting and reorganizing donations to their Threads of Hope clothes closet. They are getting ready to build a shed to replace the small closet in order to help more students. 

Threads of Hope is for students who are homeless or at risk. It's a judgment free area for kids to have their basic needs met. Kids can go in to get jackets, shoes, hygiene products, and even prom dresses. It was started as a senior project many years ago, and has expanded to become a vital part of the school's community. 

The closet serves all three schools on the campus, and all three are coming together to pitch in to help build the shed from the ground up. The architecture school will be constructing the shed as a project with their teacher. 

"It's a tangible change you can see right now. You can see all the bins of clothes we've been sorting right now, you can look at it and know you're helping right now in your area," says Senior Jamie Beatty. 

A senior at Crater High School told NewsWatch12 this project is a way to truly make a difference in someone's life, "Sometimes as kids we kind of feel powerless because we don't have a job, we don't have things to provide for our peers, but with this we can really help," says Cameron Duffy. 

Right now the school is not taking clothing donations because of how small the current closet is. They say that will come at a later time. The school does, however, need help with the building supplies. 

This project is not funded, so the school is relying on local businesses and community members to donate construction supplies to help these kids in need. Right now the school is putting together a basic supply list to construct the shed. 

If you'd like to help out with construction supplies please contact Crater High School's Counselor, Michelle Grush, at (541) 494-6343.
