Trae Tha Truth opens first ‘Truth’s Do Good Closet’ stocked with free clothes, supplies, food for HISD students struggling with homelessness

HOUSTON – Houston’s hometown hero Trae Tha Truth is continuing his philanthropic work by partnering with Houston Independent School District to provide free clothes, supplies, and food to students dealing with homelessness.

Aiming to help battle student homelessness within the city of Houston, Trae said he will be taking over classrooms at different HISD schools and converting them into a store-like experience entitled “Truth’s Do Good Closet,” where students will be able to get clothing, supplies, and food for free.

Organizers said the items from Truth’s Do Good Closet will only be provided to students who classify as homeless.

The first closet was opened on Sept. 28, at the Ethel M. Young Elementary School located at 3555 Bellfort Avenue.

In addition to partnering with HISD, Trae is also working alongside Chris Tam from Good Living Foundation.

Groceries will be provided by Kroger and Trae’s Do Good Closet is already open and ready to help students.
