The NOOK is a resource center that provides basic essentials (things like coats, shoes, socks, underwear, shirts, pants, basic and feminine hygiene) to students in our communityâ€™s schools on demand at the request of a schoolâ€™s nurse, counselor or social worker.
We are a 100% volunteer driven organization.Â There are Volunteers on Call (VOCs) during every school day who are prepared to respond to our schoolâ€™s social workers, counselors, nurses when they need items for a student.Â The VOC then responds by securing what has been requested by purchasing them or picking them up from our warehouse and delivering the package to the school.Â
