Good Run for Good Works Partners With Katelynn’s Closet to Provide Sneakers to Needy Cape Cod Children

March 29, 2020 8:40 am

Barnstable High School
744 West Main Street
Hyannis

We are so excited to announce a very special partnership with the Hyannis Rotary Club to provide sneakers to many of our recipients.  What started as early stage discussion about a partnership with Hyannis Rotary, New Balance and Hanlon Shoes is now an awesome reality!

Our friends at Hyannis Rotary have started a special program to provide sneakers to elementary school children in need in the Barnstable and Mashpee school districts. To start this program off on the right foot, they are sponsoring a Good Run for Good Works 5k/10k Walk/Run on March 29, 2020.  For every race participant, they will be giving a pair of sneakers to elementary school children in need in those school districts.  We will be the contact point, providing the sneakers to our clients in need in those areas. They hope to have 1,000 runners!

It would be so awesome to have our Katelynn’s Closet friends and supporters take part in the walk/run.  You can learn all about the details of the race here  and you can simply register online.

As an added bonus, all race participants will be given free admission to the Home, Garden and Lifestyles Show at Barnstable High School 744 West Main Street Hyannis.

We are so thankful to the race presenters, Rotary Club of Hyannis and SEMCSports and hope to see many of our friends and supporters there on March 29, 2020.

 

Barnstable High School Students Create Warm Blankets for Katelynn’s Closet

We love it when students take an active role to help us continue our mission. Barnstable High School 10-12th grade students enrolled in the Child Development course, were challenged by their teachers to create blankets from a large amount of fleece fabric that was donated by JoAnn Fabrics.  Students created their own designs and worked on them over time.

Now that the blankets were all made, one senior intern got to work on finding a local non-profit organization to donate them to and she found us! We include a blanket with our clothing orders for those children that are in a shelter so they can stay warm.

Department Head, Maria Pierozzi stopped by recently to deliver the donation and we were so excited to receive them.

We thank the students and teachers so very much for their hard work and kind thoughts.  You can be sure they will warm the hearts of those children that will receive them.

Thanks to Liz, our local director for the Pajama Program, for the recent delivery of warm and cuddly pajamas. We are so grateful to receive the donations to fill our shelves with the much needed clothing basics. And those wonderful books that were included will quickly find new homes with the children we serve.

We loved to see the handmade notes from children who donated the pajamas so other children can stay warm.  Your messages warmed our hearts as well.

To all those donors that supply the pajamas to the program, we extend our sincere thanks for your continued support.
