Help Clothes To Kids Stock Up
Happy fall, everyone! With cold weather coming and at least 2,000 more student shoppers expected before year's end, please help us keep our boutique stocked by donating our most needed items:

*Warm winter coats, jackets and hoodies (kids size XS - adult)

*NEW underwear and socks (kids size XS - adult)

*Long- and short-sleeved shirts for elementary/middle school-aged kids (especially kids sizes M, L, and XL)

*Jeans, pants and shorts for Girls (4T - 18), Boys (4T - 20), Young Women (00 - 26) and Young Men (especially waist size 27 - 36)

*Shoes that are in good condition and suitable for school. Popular styles include athletic shoes (tennis, basketball, running, skate, etc.), slip-ons (e.g., Vans), canvas (e.g., Converse or Toms), flats, boots (all types) and black uniform shoes. Our most needed sizes are for elementary school age children (kids size 10 - youth size 5).
Donations Accepted Fridays & Saturdays

We are still accepting clothing donations on Fridays and Saturdays only between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. We are in need of the basic wardrobe staples (shorts, pants, tops, shoes, etc.). We still cannot accept "extras" at this time.

To donate, gather your clean and ready-to-wear items. Check our updated Donation Guidelines for ideas. Please sort items by category (girls, boys, young women, young men and shoes) to save time at drop-off. Empty your donations into one of our rolling bins that will be located outside of our door. Please take your bags with you to reuse.
While you are there, be sure to take peek at our new and improved Donation Center (pictured above) with hanging storage by The Container Store Cherry Creek and lights donated by RK.

Thank you to our hard-working volunteers and program staff for making this dream a reality!

Sharing the Love

Our fabulous friends at the Nike Factory Store in Colorado Mills picked out some great deals on new shoes for us, plus added some very gently used returns. Lien Nguyen, a wonderful donor and volunteer, rang everything up...a big project! And a BIG win for our shoppers!

With winter cold right around the corner, our shoppers will be warm and cozy this winter thanks to the members of The Denver Knitting Group, who brought us a wonderful donation of 178 handmade hats.

Lisa Gibbs from Denver Human Services surprised us with more than 100 backpacks filled with school supplies for our shoppers. We love our nonprofit partners! 

Susan and Craig donated 54 pairs of brand new shoes that were very popular with our students doing their back-to-school shopping. Our fabulous National Charity League volunteers got them tagged and out for our shoppers super fast. 

Our friends at Liberty Media held their annual back-to-school drive, and it was a HUGE success! Marci Meyer and Steve Kozar delivered 250 pairs of new shoes, 1,000 pairs of new socks and undies, plus $1,500 in gifts that will be doubled by Liberty’s generous matching program. Thank you for helping so many of our students put their best foot forward! 

Check out these beautiful dresses, handmade with love by our volunteer Joellyn Keranen. Our shoppers adore them. This young lady picked a dress for herself and one for her sister!

A huge thank you to Charlene Andrew for her forth annual donation of crocheted hats! Charlene spends an entire year making these to donate for our fall and winter shoppers, who are always so excited to have something so beautiful and thoughtfully handmade.

Kudos to Patrick Patterson from Finish 1st Marketing for donating 81 winter hats, gloves and scarves! Thank you for helping our students stay warm and toasty!
Thank You for an Incredible Bash

Hundreds of supporters, near and far, helped us celebrate our sixth annual Blue Jean Bash from September 12 to 20. Thanks to our generous sponsors and donors, we raised $140,515 (and counting)! In case you missed our wrap-up, click HERE to see how our dedicated crew celebrated!
