Since 2008, Clothes To Kids of Denver (CTKD) has provided nearly 35,000 school wardrobes to students in need throughout Metro Denver.

Why is an appropriate wardrobe so important?

For children and teens, clothing is more than a basic need - it's key to their success in school. When students have quality clothing that helps them feel confident, they are more likely to attend school with the self-esteem needed to succeed academically.

At Clothes To Kids, students shop in a store-like environment with the help of staff and volunteers who are dedicated to providing a high level of personalized service.

Clothes To Kids serves students from ten Denver Metro counties, meaning that about 190,000 students are eligible for our services.

It costs Clothes To Kids about $50 to provide a full school wardrobe for a student in need.

Help us ensure we have enough wardrobes to supply this fall's students with the clothes they need to succeed. 

From the Executive Director

All of us at Clothes To Kids have so much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving. Thanks to YOU - our clothing donors, volunteers and financial supporters - our boutique has already given away more than 7,000 school wardrobes in 2016.  
Each wardrobe that we give makes a difference in the life of a student in need. This note from a mom who recently visited Clothes To Kids with her five children says it all:  "Shopping at Clothes To Kids is so wonderful. The excitement and joy continues to bubble forth every time my children wear the darling clothes acquired at your organization. It gives me hope that someone, you, cared enough to help."

As you gather with with family and friends this holiday weekend, please remember our heartfelt appreciation, and that of our shoppers. We couldn't do it without you! 
Warm regards,

Executive Director
