DELIVERING GOOD
Same Hope. New Name.

Started over 30 years ago as a small New York City charity addressing children's needs, Delivering Good has transformed into a major philanthropic organization that provides millions of dollars in new product annually to children, adults and families affected by poverty and disaster.

Our name change from K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers to  Delivering Good will allow us to better communicate our mission of delivering hope and dignity to people in need.

Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation

For 40 years, the Winter Park, Florida-based Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation, Inc., has continued the mission of its founder, the late philanthropist Edyth Bush, by creating innovative solutions to help families and children better themselves.

In 2002, the Foundation's Board of Directors requested partnerships with leading nonprofit organizations to provide underprivileged central Florida families and children essential needs like food, clothing, shelter, and employment. The Foundation recently renewed its generous gift for 2017.

The Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation support to Delivering Good has provided as much as $1,000,000 in product donations annually to communities in the Orlando metropolitan area, benefiting organizations that include  A Gift for Teaching, The Mustard Seed, Devereux, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, Harvest Time International and Jewish Family Services of Greater Orlando, Inc.

Over the years, grants from the foundation have allowed us to provide over $8.7 million in product donations to children and families in need throughout Central Florida.

"The gift of new clothes from Delivering Good brings a special smile to children and families in need -- the same feeling we all have in wearing a new shirt or blouse.
David A.Odahowski, President & CEO of the Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation

Get A Dress Give A Dress

Ann Taylor  recently partnered with  Delivering Good
to empower women in need with a special in-store initiative called "Get A Dress, Give A Dress." Based on dress sales from May 18-25, the retailer donated 5,000 dresses to Delivering Good.

We distributed the donated dresses to community partners across the U.S. whose programming focuses on empowering women in need by giving them the tools to build a better future.

"The donation of gorgeous dresses from Ann Taylor is now stocking our boutique and ready to go home with our clients. Many of our volunteers have commented that the prints are beautiful and the silhouettes are perfect for work. We're so thankful for these pieces and the continued support from Delivering Good."
Melissa Norden, Bottomless Closet Executive Director

Agency of the Quarter

Foster Kids Charity, Inc.  is a nonprofit organization based in Dallas, Texas, dedicated to transforming and improving the lives of children within the Texas foster care system. Foster Kids Charity utilizes its partnership with Delivering Good to assure that these children receive essential clothing and personal hygiene items.  Foster Kids Charity has been a community partner since September 2011, receiving
product donations from generous donors like Carters and Toys"R"Us.

With a recent donation from us, the charity was able to serve 50 children who just entered the foster care system. The organization is currently expanding its program by opening a new office in California.

"If it wasn't for Delivering Good, I don't think I would be able to help as many children as I've been able to over the last few years. The best part of Delivering Good donations is that they are new, and the kind of things that foster parents feel good about giving the children that come to live with them, especially the ones that have to be suddenly removed from a bad home situation."  
Michelle Armour, Director and Founder of Foster Kids Charity, Inc.
