EVENT DETAILS
“It gave us hope.”  This is what Yuliana Flores-Montes said about Clothes For Kids at the Transforming Lives Breakfast on October 20th.  She shared the story of her family’s move from southern California to Washington when Yuliana was 12 years old.  She, along with her six siblings, had to adjust to a new school and new environment while their now-single mom worked three jobs and maintained a one-bedroom apartment for the eight of them.  Fortunately, Clothes For Kids was available to help Yuliana’s family.
 
Since 1984, Clothes For Kids has been providing low-income students with school wardrobes.  The only way this is possible is through the generosity of our community. 
With the holidays and colder weather approaching, we are even more focused on accomplishing our vision of empowering students for success one wardrobe at a time. 
 
Clothes For Kids has already provided more than 2,225 wardrobes this school year--and we anticipate continuing to outpace our numbers from last year.  In order to provide a comprehensive wardrobe, we ask for community support and donations from individuals like you.  Help us to empower students in our communities and relieve low-income families of this burden.  One parent said during opening week, “This is the one time I don’t have to say ‘no’ to my children. Thank you!”
