Since 2016, Student Success Stores have operated free and anonymous spaces for students to shop right inside their school. The stores stock items such as food, clothes, school supplies, and hygiene products. By providing students with the basic essentials, Student Success Stores helps ensure each child starts the school day healthy, confident and ready to learn. 


Join Besa and Student Success Stores to provide local students with basic essentials, and help them thrive in school. Besa volunteers will organize the new F.O.R.T Store located at Fort Hayes High School. Tasks may include sorting, counting and arranging products, labeling and restocking shelves, and posting signage in the store. 


Check out the F.O.R.T Store in action!
