Parents

We do NOT accept clothing requests directly from parents in order to ensure the anonimity of the kids that we help. If you need to request clothing for your own kids, please contact your child's school guidance counselor. They can submit the request to us for your child and we will deliver the bag of clothing back to them to give to your child.
No, we want to help all children that are truly in need of clothes. We know that people who receive no outside financial assistance can go through hard times or disasters in life that can cause them to have immediate needs. We want to help in these situations to ensure that your kids have the clothing they need.
As a parent you should work with your child's school to request a bag from us. Once we receive the request from the school our normal delivery time is one week. However if the school indicates that the need is immediate, we will get the bag to the school as soon as possible, usually within 48 hours. If we do not have the correct sizes in stock for your child, we will notify the requestor so that they can let you know that there might be a delay before your child can receive clothes.

Churches and Businesses

We love having churches get involved in our ministry. Please visit our Get Involved page to learn more.
Yes, we are looking for business sponsors who are willing to help us with reoccurring or one time financial gifts to cover our costs of operation. We would not be able to continue giving clothes to kids in need without the support of local businesses and churches. If you decide to support us, we will ensure that the public is aware of your dedication to helping the kids in our area through our website and our own marketing efforts.
