Help us help our community!  


"Downing Diamondbacks Give Back" is a new addition to DMS

that helps assist our own students in need.


Every DMS student in need of basic clothing items or school supplies can benefit from this program through their teachers, counselors, school nurses, principals and staff who will assess and determine their needs.


In order to make this program a success we are looking to collect the following items:


New or Gently-Used Clothing

(boys and girls, sizes 10-18, in slim, regular, and husky, and up to adult-sized medium)


  • pants, jeans, and shorts
  • socks and underwear - NEW only please!
  • shoes and belts
  • hooded sweatshirts
  • winter coats
  • gloves and hats



  • toothpaste and toothbrushes 
  • shampoo
  • soap or body wash
  • deodorant
  • chapstick
  • hairbrushes and combs


School Supplies

  • backpacks
  • binders, folders
  • arts and crafts supplies (stickers, paper, etc.)


Help us fill our "Downing Diamondbacks Give Back" Room!

Donations may be dropped off in the DMS office.
