Dumbarton Middle Network
Dumbarton Middle School joined the Student Support Network in July, 2019.
Founded in 1956, Dumbarton Middle School has students in grades 6-8 with a current enrollment of 1,224 students. Of these, 19.2% live in severe poverty: 235 qualify for Free Meals, 80 depend on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and 19 are currently identified as homeless. Many others live in families who make too much to qualify for meal assistance, but not enough to make ends meet.
The lead volunteers of the Dumbarton Middle Network are Shannon Carney, Lisa Mathias, and Emily Parks, who work with school staff to fulfill student needs and stock and organize the room for students, now known as the Comfort Closet. Please feel free to contact Shannon or Lisa or Emily for current donation needs.
