Clothe Our Kids is a local non-profit group whose mission is to provide at-risk children with needed clothing and shoes.
This is accomplished 100% through community clothing and financial donations. Clothing bags are delivered directly to school counselors or case workers who call and request help for a child in need.
Our goal is to help these children feel loved, cared for, and good about themselves. We refer to this as “clothing kids with confidence.” Each bag is custom packed with quality items and with the individual needs of the child in mind.
HOW WE GOT STARTED
Two local moms felt called to help and decided to respond. Clothe Our Kids was founded in November 2013 and began operating out of the top of a garage. The organization has since expanded to a 3,500 sq. ft. warehouse in downtown Fayetteville, TN. They provide clothes and shoes to children in Fayetteville/Lincoln County, Tennessee and surrounding counties.
WHERE WE ARE GOING FROM HERE
We want to spread the love! It is our hope for every community, across our nation, to have an independent chapter of Clothe Our Kids. The need is great but the ability and heart of others to help is even greater. Our process is simple and can easily be reproduced. All that’s needed is a space to warehouse clothes and a small group of volunteers who have a heart to help kids.
For anyone interested, we have put together a packet of information detailing how we got started, suggestions on what we have found that works (and what doesn’t) and any other info we thought you might find helpful. We want to help you help kids!
