Castle High’s Ron Bright Theatre now has an easy, accessible way to clean its performers’ costumes, thanks to a donation from Ross’ Appliances and Furniture.

Store owner and operator Tyler Palmer donated a washer and dryer worth $475 to the CPAC program after reading a post from the school’s performing and visual arts teacher Karen Meyer on SupportMyClass.org.

“We’ve been using donated second-hand ones for decades,” wrote Meyer, “and the current ones aren’t working anymore. Without your donation, we wouldn’t be able to have clean costumes for our performances. Our costumes play a big part in our shows. Without your donation, the show would go on, but we wouldn’t look good.”

SupportMyClass.org, operated by the nonprofit Hawaii Children’s Foundation, helps public school teachers pay for classroom needs through community and corporate donations.

SupportMyClass.org has been a great benefit to our performing arts program here at Castle,” Meyer stated. “Our washer and dryer were on their last legs, and through the generosity of Ross’ Appliances, they have been replaced.

“We have hundreds of student performers – actors, singers and dancers – on our stage each year, and that’s a lot of laundry! Thank you so much, Ross’ and SupportMyClass.org.”
