VERNON, Texas (KAUZ) - The Boys and Girls Club of Vernon has started a closet for families and kids within the area who may need an extra hand with making it through a tough time.

Campsey’s Closet was founded six years ago, but it’s supporting families now that schools are closed. Sarah Hernandez, executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of Vernon, said the closet is an extra resource for the community and parents can stop by anytime from 3-5p.m.

Hernandez said when kids come to the club with an immediate need, she helps them.

“We take them directly out to Campsey’s Closet, which is more like a building than a closet, and we meet whatever need they may have. If we notice they’re overly hungry during snack time or if we notice that or if they’ve got holes in their shoes or their pants are too short, we take them directly out there and meet that need,” said Hernandez.
