Our most ambitious project ever! NEW Summer Clothes for Kids! Families in need are struggling more than ever! Although they may be getting back to work, they are in danger of eviction due to being months behind in rent and other bills.
One thing we can do to help them is provide basic necessities like food and clothing. Due to continued concerns about COVID, we've re-designed the way we do clothing distributions, and we need your help to make it happen! (Clothes will be distributed to families at a food distribution in their neighborhood on May 29.)
By providing new clothes from wish lists collected directly from families, we will also be sure to meet the actual needs of the families. Plus, new clothes will last longer and can be passed down to younger siblings and cousins.
Please sign up for a child and then shop for the items on that child's wish list. We are requesting 2 shirts and 2 shorts per child if possible. Dresses and bathing suits are optional. This is a great group project for Scouts, Church Groups, Book Clubs, Community Organizations. Pick a family and have each person in the group contribute items for that family.
Put the clothing in a bag and label it with Nurturing Families, the Family number and the Child number and drop it off to one of the locations listed below by May 25.
