When Hyannis Rotary Club member W Patrick Lentell of SEMC Sports heard about the Katelynn’s Closet Foot the Bill program to raise money for new sneakers for children it was a natural match for this runner who understands the need for a good new pair of sneakers. With this beginning, the Hyannis Rotary took up the cause to provide new sneakers for the children we serve and a partnership with Hanlon’s Shoes and New Balance Sneakers was created. Recently Ann Bearse, Executive Director of Katelynn’s Closet was presented with a check for $11725.00 to purchase 335 pairs of New Balance sneakers through Hanlon’s Shoes. We are so appreciative to Hyannis Rotary Club ,whose guiding principle is”Service Above Self” for this amazing donation.
On a blustery Tuesday in March, Ed Davis, owner of Ed Davis Carpentry, stopped by our office with a wonderful donation of 60 backpacks filled with basic necessities for children in need on the Cape. Ed learned about Katelynn’s Closet from one of his customers, who is a regular supporter of our organization. This donation was just one on his list of Cape Cod non-profits he is helping. To date, he has donated 100 filled backpacks. This hard working Cape Cod man was moved to make a difference in people’s lives, when one day , while running an errand on a cold winter day, he saw a man walking on the street with only light weight clothing and no socks. This moved him to make a small difference in the lives of needy folks. He is a humble man, using his financial resources to help people during this difficult time. While he is a one man show, some friends of his saw the good he is doing and help him with small contributions. In this time of need for so many people, yes, one person can make a difference. Will that next person to make a difference in people’s lives be you?
The pandemic could not stop these generous ladies from providing their annual Christmas donation to Katelynn’s Closet. These ladies came dressed in their best holiday clothes and loaded their cars with bags of new clothes to help fill our shelves. We appreciate your continued support of our mission and we wish you a wonderful holiday.
We had a wonderful visit from an awesome group of Employees from Davenport Realty.
For the last several years, the Davenport Employees have selected our organization to receive donations from their holiday giving program. Employee donations are matched by the company, so that’s a double win for us. We so appreciate their continued support of our mission and thank them for their donations.
Bombas has a truly awesome program to provide socks to folks in need. For every pair of socks purchased, they donate one pair.
We were made aware of this program by one of our volunteers, Donna. Donna has been wearing these socks for a long time and she knows of their quality and comfort. She wanted to share that comfort with our kids in need and initiated the donation request to them. Even in the midst of the delivery issues with the pandemic, we received huge boxes of socks for our children. Thank you Donna for doing the work to make the order possible.
We invite you to learn all about the Bombas donation program by visiting their website .
