We outfit your child for school - gym shoes, socks, underwear, school outfits and winter outerwear, including boots. All donated locally for local children, we have both new and good quality used items. We serve by appointment only so apply early in the school year for best results. You are welcome to return in spring for more shoes and spring clothes.

    How can I help?

Talk to your friends and family

Pass the word! Families are eligible to participate if they are unable to buy the clothes their children need. We do not have set income guidelines. Talk to your school social worker or family advocate about your situation. They will help you with the required referral form. Most of our families are eligible for free lunch or have some special need - fire, job loss, recent move, military callup, or ?
