A shocking 1,400 students in Davis County experience homelessness, 300 of whom are high schoolers. The Clearfield High School Teen Center provides students in need with a safe place to shower, do laundry, access hygiene, and clothing items, study, and refuel. They offer these services to teens not only experiencing homelessness but also to those that have less-than-ideal home situations.
Clearfield City donated $150,000 to help open the center in 2021. Since opening, it has helped an average of 30 students each day. That’s 5,400 visits per year!
The Teen Center accepts donations of new items they’ll distribute to teens in need. Ideas for needed items include:
CLOTHING • HYGIENE ITEMS • WASHCLOTHS • FOOD GIFT CARDS • SCHOOL MATERIALS
