Local families and kids are one step closer to being ready for school thanks to the Traveling Closet.
It's put on by the Central Coast Children's Resource Network. On Sunday, workers were out at Santa Maria High School handing out school supplies, children's books, diapers, and clothing.
The idea is to help kids and families who can't afford to buy everything they need for the new school year.
"We're 92% Hispanic at this high school and 100% Title 1, and reaching out to this part of the community at this site is crucial, to be able to get into that community and do the services, provide the services," said Caren Ray, a Santa Maria High School teacher and Arroyo Grande City Councilwoman.
