The Organization: Clothes Helping Kids Inc.
About the Organization: Clothes Helping Kids Inc. started in 2000 and has been very active in making child care programs supplied with enough money to help them through the year. They run mostly by calls to resident homes asking for donations of clothes as well as furniture and household items. They have specific days throughout the year to go to neighborhoods and pick up these requested items. You can also make an appointment to have items you want picked up throughout the year or drop your items off at their many location collections boxes. After clothes are collected they are taken to Savers, separated and sold. All proceeds from the items collected are given to Clothes Helping Kids Inc. and then awarded in grants. These grant participants have programs that feature educational, cultural, and health related activities for kids.
