Donate to Kaitie’s Closet

Spring is just around the corner. So, if you have made a jump on spring cleaning and are clearing out closets and drawers, consider donating gently used clothing that your children can no longer wear to Kaitie’s Closet.

Kaitie’s Closet distributes clothing to youth in need all around the Rim Country. As winter ends, the organization finds its supplies beginning to dwindle and having to ask for more donations — not only clothing, but also tax-deductible monetary contributions that help as each month the supply of under clothing and socks needs to be replenished.

Donations of clothing may be made at the offices of each of the community’s elementary schools and the middle school, at Scoops Espresso, Tiny’s Restaurant, Payson Physical Therapy and Beeline Business Equipment, checks payable to Kaitie’s Closet can be mailed to 304 W. Corral Drive, Payson, AZ 85541 — 100 percent of financial donations go for the purchase of supplies for the children served by the organization.
