The ultimate goal, according to one coordinator, is to provide resources for students and others in need at no cost and without asking.
Lisa Ray, president and CEO of the Children's Resource Network of the Central Coast, said she began preparations Friday to have similar offerings coming from the campus's Traveling Closet program south of Broadway.
Volunteers drive a trailer full of free clothing and school supplies between San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties for the Traveling Closet program. Ray said he also has office space in San Luis Obispo and Arroyo Grande but families who most need the free resources don't have transportation to get to San Luis Obispo County.
"If a family has clothing and resource problems, they probably have mobility problems," she said.
"The only thing that matters to us is that if there is a child that needs help, we are going to help them," Ray said.
She added that Children's Resource Network needs new pants, shirts, coats, shoes, diapers, personal items, and school supplies for the Santa Maria High School location.
Martha Janzen, a community advisor at the school, thanked Ray on Friday for his effort to meet what she calls a great need at the school.
"This is fantastic news," said Janzen.
Ken Groppetti, plant manager at Santa Maria High School, said administrators are still working through any insurance issues that may come from accepting donations at the school.
"There are hurdles we have to go through," he said.
