Husky Resource Closet

“One Less Thing to Worry About”
Husky Resource Closet at Hillcrest High School

“One less thing to worry about. It’s tough, I tell you.” Assistant Principal Mrs. Brenda McCann exclaims. At Hillcrest High School, the new Community School Facilitator, Dr. Andrea G. Martinez has been working with the school administration, counselors, faculty, and donors to supply the Husky Resource Closet. The Husky Resource Closet is located inside the school and is stocked with hygiene and clothing items along with a food pantry for students to use. It is a confidential, safe, and welcoming space for students that need “one less thing to worry about.”

Items for the closet have been donated by multiple school and community partners. “One day, I received an email from a parent and asked, ‘how can I help?’ I emailed them a list of items our closet needed and two days later the items were delivered,” Dr. Martinez says. Increasing the items found in the Husky Resource Closet has been a team effort.  The Robotics Team did a food drive and collected non-perishable items. “They brought items they had at home or they went to the store and purchased them,” shared faculty club advisor Mr. Clief Castleton. The Latinos in Action student group helped to organize the items and created 70 weekend bags. FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) donated warm winter blankets and Key Club joined in and will be donating much needed gym clothes items along with underwear and socks. Drill Team collected hygiene items and created kits. “Knowing that there are Hillcrest students in-need and that we had the power to help them meant so much to all of my girls. As their coach, it was inspiring to see how much my girls were able to collect. I am very proud of their efforts,” says Drill Team Coach Ms. Divine. This precise sentiment shared by all club advisors and faculty. New and gently used clothing items have also been donated by staff and faculty.

In addition, 45 winter coats were delivered and donated by the Larry H. Miller Foundation. Clothing items and shoes were donated by Scheels. The Edwards Lifesciences corporation donated 100 hygiene kits and 300 snack kits. Through the generous donations of United Way of Salt Lake and private sponsors, a number of families will receive holiday assistance through the school’s “Sub-for-Santa.”

As a Community School, Hillcrest is a hub of academic learning, healthy child development, family support, and neighborhood cohesion. We are continuously working with community partners in connecting and aligning wraparound services for our students. For example, Utah Partners for Health’s free medical and vision mobile clinic will visit the school on January 8, 2019. We have also partnered with United Way to have community members volunteer as reading tutors. The volunteers work one-on-one in supporting our English Language Learners in core areas like math, science, and English.

We want to thank the generous support from our partners, donors and sponsors:

  • Hillcrest High Student Groups: Robotics Club, Key Club, FCCLA, Latinos in Action, Drill Team, Student Body Officers (SBOs), and International Baccalaureate (IB) Leadership
  • Scheels
  • United Way of Salt Lake
  • Edwards Lifesciences
  • Larry H. Miller Foundation
  • Kids Eat Program
  • Canyons Education Foundation
  • Canyons’ Student Advocacy and Access
  • Hillcrest Staff and Faculty
  • Midvale 7th Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
  • Private Donors

If a student/family is in-need of support from the Husky Resource Closet, who can they ask for help?  Students can confide in their teachers, counselors, social worker/school psychologist, and/or administration. They meet with them individually and can walk them up over to the closet so they can get the items they need. All information is confidential and the process is discrete. We want students to feel safe and welcomed when using our Husky Resource Closet. For more information, email Dr. Andrea Garavito Martinez at This email address is being protected from spambots.
