A sixth-grade teacher in Bakersfield, California was so sad to see kids coming to school wearing old, torn clothes that she started a clothing bank for students.

That was three years ago, and after getting so many donations from the community, she now runs it, inside an old classroom, as a benefit for the entire community.

Mrs. Susan Holloway at McKee Middle School has donated countless hours of her time to  the clothing bank, which has grown to accommodate the needs of more than 10,000 students in the Greenfield Union School District.

Holloway’s colleague said it might be inspirational for other teachers — or anyone else — to realize that they too can take an idea and create “something amazing from nothing”.
