Curbside Service for Rose Hill Elementary

Catherine Mendez from Commerce City's Rose Hill Elementary and our Program Coordinator Rosy Arnold are working together to fill Clothes To Kids Curbside orders for the entire school through the end of 2020. Families at this school face formidable transportation barriers, making Curbside the best option for a majority of students at the school.
It has been a true pleasure working with their team to fulfill these requests and schedule in-person appointments for their school community. Their note describes the positive impact of this project:
Thank you to all who are working make this project possible!
Sharing the Love

Andrea Scott delivered hundreds of great items collected at the Prophetic Praise and Glory Ministries annual worship conference. We have worked with this wonderful group for the past six years and always appreciate their enthusiasm, support and boundless energy!

This sweet birthday girl collected 43 pairs of new socks and 24 pairs of new underwear as part of her celebration. She and her brother were so excited to deliver everything to our shop!

We received another load of beautiful new shoes from our neighbors at Risen Christ Catholic Parish. This generous congregation has supported us in this way annually for the past eight years.

Jason Mundy, a long-time supporter and volunteer, saw our social media posts requesting young men's clothing and rushed over with his donations immediately. Awesome!

We had a fantastic volunteer group from Kantorei, a nonprofit choral ensemble. They did everything from sorting, tagging and hanging to fixing a broken vent in our shoe department! We appreciate your beautiful music and your generous support.

A big shout-out to Kent Denver School for holding a huge drive-through coat drive. They have delivered almost 300 amazing coats, many brand new! Special thanks to drive organizers Della Patteson and Heather Hobson for all their extra work making this collection successful, safe and pandemic-friendly!

When we received some coats that needed washing and special stain treatment, our Coat Angel Patty Estes came to the rescue! She did a fantastic job and saved some really amazing coats!

The fabulous team from Savvy Realty just finished an amazingly successful clothing drive. They set up four collection locations in Denver, Aurora, and Lone Tree and ended up with so many items that they needed a UHaul to deliver everything!

Meet Caitlin! This Chatfield Senior High student went above and beyond collecting coats for our students. She advertised her drive in her neighborhood, school, gymnastics gym and even her former elementary school. Then she sorted and labeled everything before delivering it to our shop.
