What We Provide
Personal Hygiene Items
Sometimes students may find themselves in a difficult position where having basic toiletries, like soap, shampoo, deodorant or laundry soap, may be a challenge. In the Orbit, we take the worry out of this situation by being able to discretely supply personal hygiene items to students on an as needed basis.
The Orbit is stocked with new and gently used clothing for our students including sweat shirts & pants, jeans, t-shirts, and shoes. We also supply winter coats, hats, gloves, and mittens to our students.
The Orbit contains backpacks and can provide students with any necessary school supplies.
Some of our students may also find that being able to secure food after school and on the weekends is difficult. The Orbit stocks a limited supply of non-perishable food items like tuna, peanut butter, cereal bars, etc., that these students may take for weekends and after school as needed.
Make a Donation
Donating is easy, simply drop off new or like new items from the list on the right.
The Orbit also welcomes monetary donations and partnerships with local businesses. Please take a look at the following list, simply bring in your donations marked “The Orbit”, and drop them at NHS main Door #3.
We’ll also work to have holiday support opportunities for these students, so please check this page often.
