Lelan Smith’s father is a pretty smart guy. “My dad says the two ways to be healthy are to keep your head warm and to keep your feet warm,” Smith said. Simple as that sounds, poverty complicates the formula. Smith is a student at Oakland High School, where the students’ lives can be complicated indeed. At 17, Smith has a 2-year-old daughter. Oakland allows her to build her schedule around that responsibility, and her goal of getting a diploma, a job and her own place. It does the same for students in equally difficult circumstances. Some work full-time jobs so they can stay housed. Some couch surf. Some have no home or enough food, and not a penny for clothes. For all of them, Christine Lucy of Communities in Schools runs a clothing bank stocked with shoes, jeans, school wear, work clothes and not enough coats, hoodies and socks. On Nov. 26, she had one basket of white cotton socks, some of which came in used. New, warm socks are a rare thrill in the clothing bank.
