After nearly 40 years of providing clothing to children in need throughout our community, we expanded our Child Clothing Project in order to reach children year-round. By operating Child Clothing Closets in schools and nonprofits throughout Okaloosa and Walton Counties, we are able to give children access to appropriate clothing as they need it.
Our goal is to provide the schools and nonprofits with necessary resources to make sure that children have access to brand new, clean, well-fitted clothing. By providing this resource to children, we hope to ensure that a child’s clothing does not hinder their ability to develop a positive self-image or to learn.
The Child Clothing Closets give children access to items like socks, shoes, underwear, belts, school uniform items, and winter coats. Much like items they receive at our annual Child Clothing Project, these items are theirs to keep.
Thank you to our sponsors who are helping us make a difference in our community!
