One of the many REF awarded grants was used to fund the start-up of The Locker.
In 2016, the students of Ridley High School established a non-profit store to sell apparel and other merchandise to their peers, faculty, staff and the community. Profits from the store help to support Ridley’s Future Business Leaders of America club, Ridley Families in Need and the Ridley Educational Foundation.
The school store is open every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during student and faculty lunches. On Tuesdays and Thursdays the school store shares its space with the Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union for our student-run Financial Literacy Center. As partners, FMFCU and Ridley School District hope to educate students on financial literacy and prepare them for the real world. The Locker is a student-run business that sells t-shirts, sweatshirts, polos, sweatpants and much more.
Throughout the school year, The Locker will hold special events outside of school hours to allow community members to come in and support our store
