Clothing bags & gift cardsdistributed last year
With your help, we can do more
Katelynn’s Closet is so very proud to have so many friends who donate money and clothing to help us carry on our mission. During this holiday season, we are so grateful to the civic organizations, book clubs, schools, businesses and individuals who make donations so our children can receive clothing bags or gift cards.
If you would like to join our friends in putting smiles on the faces of needy Cape and Islands children, please know we are always in need of new underwear, socks and pajamas in sizes 4-18/20 kids. Some of our friends take one of our collection bins to their office or store and collect these items from their employees and customers. In addition to our larger collection bins, we have a smaller size, perfect for a home party or small office. If you have an interest on using our bins to gather clothing, please call us at 508-367-2587 or email us.
As you spend time with those you love during the holidays, know that your donations will help provide the very basic need of clothing to Cape and Islands children. On behalf of the children we serve, we extend our sincere thanks.
We are so proud that Yarmouth Firefighters Local 2122 has chosen us as one of the recipients for their Homeless for the Holidays event.
Here’s what they have to say:
“Yarmouth Professional Firefighters will be going Homeless for the Holidays for our 6th year. STARTING December 4th at noon, For 103 straight hours your Firefighter/EMTs and Firefighter/Paramedics will be braving the cold weather collecting new unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots, non-perishable food items for the Yarmouth Food Pantry, and new CHILDREN’S and TEEN’S pajamas, socks, and underwear for Katelynn’s Closet. Pick up an extra few non-perishable food items and come see us at 1044 Route 28 South Yarmouth (Next to Dunkin Donuts, across from Walgreens in the Church parking lot). We will be there December 4th-8th! Thank you in advance and we wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season!”
We invite you to visit them and support the charities they have selected. Thank you so very much.
We are so very grateful to the almost 200 donors who made our 3rd annual Foot the Bill campaign such an amazing success. Not only did we provide about 350 pairs of new sneakers for needy Cape and Islands children for Back to School, but we can continue to provide those new sneakers for many more children in the upcoming months. Our donors have understood our mission and supported it.
Special thanks go out to our media friends who shared our story in print, social media and voice. Without your commitment to the children we serve, we could not have gotten the message out to potential donors. Thank you so very much on behalf of the children we serve.
Our friends at the Cape Cod Times are so kind to tell their readers all about our good works on the Cape and Islands. Reporter Kristen Young visited our warehouse recently and learned all about the amazing work being done to help provide clothing to children in need on the Cape and Islands. Thank you Kristen for allowing us to share our mission with the readers of the Cape Cod Times. Read all about it.
