The Nurse's Pantry

For a child living in poverty or in an ALICE household, a lack of basic necessities is one of the top reasons for chronic absenteeism.

What it is: An in-school resource for clothing, toiletries and other wellness products so kids can succeed in school and in life.

How it works: Mifflin and Juniata Elementary students are introduced to The Nurse’s Pantry by the school nurse, principal, or guidance counselor. In addition to attire, The Nurse’s Pantry provides hygiene items, appropriate footwear, outerwear, undergarments and lice treatment kits to those students who need these basic necessities to attend school.
