The mission of Clothes To Kids is to provide new and quality used clothing to low-income or in crisis, school-age children, free of charge. Our shoppers are kids in both Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties who are eligible for free and reduced price lunch. Their families are struggling to provide the basic necessities and many of these children are worried, even panicked, about going to school. They don't have clothes that fit, and worse, they don't have clothes that make them feel like they fit in.
They will hesitate to raise their hands in the classroom because it will call attention to their clothing. It's tough to learn when what you're wearing is making you feel uncomfortable. Without proper clothing, a child can suffer emotionally, physically, and academically. Clothes To Kids is committed to ensuring that school children have quality clothing so they can focus on schoolwork.
Clothes To Kids envisions a community in which every school-age child has quality clothing so that he or she may attend school with the confidence and self-esteem needed to achieve academic success.
