In its four distributions of 2021 (January was snowed out), Kaitie’s Closet has served 100 children.
Some 56 laundered jackets/coats were given out. An unquantified amount of other gently used clothing was distributed, too. New clothing dispersed this spring included: 67 pairs of new shoes; 98 pairs of new underwear; 114 pairs of new socks; and 34 pairs of new slippers/flip-flops. Various other new items, such as dresses, trousers, and shirts purchased by friends of Kaitie’s Closet were also given out.
Finally, in April, the children were able to put together gift bags of books, sweets, and other valuables such as sunglasses, lip gloss, and the like. This activity was fun for children and volunteers alike.
There will be no clothing distribution in June. Kaitie’s Closet resumes providing children with clothing in July.
Many thanks to the men and women of the community who volunteer with this program. They put in 193 hours of work for the area’s children.
