We are thrilled to announce the soft opening of the Cambridge Street Closet located next to the Science Center at BHS!

This closet is a resource for any Burlington Public Schools student or their family member who is in need of gently used/new clothing, such as coats, pants, shirts, socks, pajamas, or shoes, school supplies, and personal hygiene items.

BHS Students


The Cambridge Street Closet aims to create a safe space for all students to shop for donated clothes regardless of their identities. The Cambridge Street Closet possesses several racks and bins of donations, including baby clothes, boys’ and girls’ clothes, mens’ and womens’ clothes, and various hygiene products. Since its founding in January of 2023, directors Renee Dacey , a Spanish teacher at Burlington High School, and Rosemary DeSousa, BPS Central Office administrative assistant, have maintained the Cambridge Street Closet.

If you know of any students who are in need of any of the above supplies or who have additional needs, please feel free to contact us or bring the students directly to the Cambridge Street Closet.

We would like to extend our gratitude to the BHS Life Skills class and the Evening Academy for donating their time to organize the donations received from the organization, HELPIS, and community members.

At the Cambridge Street Closet, our main objectives are to:
- Provide students with easy access to basic needs, such as clothing and hygiene products.
- Encourage donations from the community.
- Inspire diversity, inclusion, a passion for service, and a desire to help the world around us among our student body and community.

- Clothing of all genders and ages: hats, tops, bottoms, socks, shoes, ties, scarves, dresses, jackets, new undergarments, new swimsuits, handbags, gloves, pajamas
- Toiletries: shampoo, conditioner, feminine hygiene products, soap, toothpaste, skincare, lotion
- New school supplies
