A Special Thank You

Katelynn’s Closet was founded to provide clothing to children in need on the Cape and Islands.  Katelynn, daughter of Executive Director Ann Bearse and her husband Matt, died at 9 1/2 years old awaiting a heart transplant.  Ann always said when she looked good, she felt good. This year, in her memory, we made over 1200 kids in need look good and feel good.

At this beautiful Christmas time we have so many people to thank for making this possible:

  • Our Supporters whose generosity enables us to provide the clothes and gift cards we need
  • The many community organizations and businesses who hold fund raisers on our behalf
  • The Bayberry Quilters and other ladies who sew our amazing bags
  • The social workers and school staff who identify the need and do all the work to make sure the kids are warmly clothed
  • Our Board of Directors who provide guidance to ensure our mission is carried out
  • Our volunteers who show their commitment to the kids in so many ways
  • The many friends who share our mission through social media

As we come to the end of another year, we extend our sincere appreciation to everyone on behalf of the children we serve.
