Kindness, now, more than ever

This is our kindness card that each child is given with their clothing order. During these difficult times, we ask you to share these easy acts of kindness with those around you.

While we are sad that our major fundraiser of the year had to be cancelled, we are confident that our friends still realize the importance of our mission and will be there when we are ready to be back providing clothes to the children in need on the Cape and Islands.

May the children and the families we serve, our loyal social workers and counselors and all our friends be safe and well.

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.

2nd Graders at Barnstable West Barnstable Elementary School Create Kindness Pins for Katelynn’s Closet Fundraiser

In the fall, 2nd grade students and teachers at Barnstable West Barnstable Elementary School completed a community service project.  They made kindness pins with hearts on them and sold them to their school community.  We are so excited that they chose Katelynn’s Closet as the recipient of their $350.00 earnings.

A note included with the check said “..We appreciate all that you do for the students within our school, as well as the families in our Cape Cod Community.  Thank you so much for your continued efforts to make our community a special place…..We hope that this will help in giving back to the families on Cape Cod.”

Yes, BWB 2nd graders and teachers, it will make a difference to the children we serve.  Thank you so very much for your act of kindness.


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.
