Dickinson Public Schools provides a room in the Hagen building for families of DPS students who need clothes, shoes, school supplies and food. The items are donated from local families and businesses. Last spring, a 5k run helped to contribute funds to purchase what they need. The pantry is mostly operated by the schools' counselors, so if you would like information about donating, contact your school's counselor. To gain access to the pantry, you'll just need your ID. The pantry will be open Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Volunteer Carol Herauf said they hope to open it once a week during the school year and as needed.
