USDD Caring Closet


The Birdhouse, De Pere School District’s Caring Closet, aims to make a difference by aiding the Unified School District of De Pere community by providing resources and essential items in a safe and confidential way.
This idea was developed by The Do Something Special Club at De Pere High School, and this organization, along with the Caring Closet I/E class, has continued to plan and implement the business plan. 


To provide daily needs in a confidential and safe environment to individuals in the De Pere District who are in need. 


  • Make a positive impact by providing families with necessities.

  • Give families and students’ confidence and a sense of belonging.

  • Provide a well-organized and confidential place to get needed belongings.

  • Give students who are striving to do well academically an extra boost to ensure their focus can be on education and not on meeting basic needs.

  • Continue to expand to provide for the whole community.

Donations Needed:
  • Gently used and/or new clothing
  • Hygiene items
  • Cleaning Products
  • School supplies

The Birdhouse was open in September of 2016 and located in the counseling office at the high school.  Donations can be brought to the high school main office.
