Clothes for Kids

The beginning of a new school year should be a time of eagerness and excitement. Yet for many poor children it can be embarrassing if they do not have adequate clothes, shoes and school supplies. The Clothes for Kids program provides children with the clothes and supplies they need to start the school year with confidence.

The Clothes for Kids program assisted 273 children in 2016.
Many thanks to our friends at Innersole who provided new sneakers for all of the children!

If you would like for your child to participate in this program, please fill out an application at the address below by Friday July 21, 2017.
