What started out as a closet of clothes has grown into a full-fledged community resource that also gives students work experience.
Marla's Mall was established in memory of Marla Cavallo, a long-time PE and health teacher at Baker High School who died of breast cancer Jan. 19, 2007, at the age of 45.
"We started out with just a little corner of the Learning Center classroom," said Susan Myers, who helps run Marla's Mall.
It has since relocated to North Baker Elementary, where the clothing alone takes up an entire room.
