Special Thanks to Golden State Foods for their generous donation of 39 winter coats and gloves for our students in need.

Golden State Foods has often graciously given winter gear to our Delavan-Darien Students and our students, staff and families are thankful for the company’s support.

With approximately 70 percent of our students (district-wide) qualifying for the federal free and reduced lunch program, the coats and gloves are often needed.

If you have any winter gear—new or gently used hats, coats, gloves, scarves, boots, snow pants for students of any age—you can drop them off at our Comet Care Center at Phoenix Middle School or any school’s main office.

The Comet Care Center also accepts donations of regular clothes (shirts, pants, socks, underwear, T-shirts, sweaters, etc.), shoes, toiletries, toys/games, coat hangers, alarm clocks and school supplies. These items are distributed to students—for free—on an as-needed basis.

Having such supplies helps all students receive a better education and helps fulfill students’ physical, social and emotional needs, which improves overall health, too!
