When a family is struggling to provide basic necessities, the children may be 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. Without proper clothing, a child can suffer emotionally, physically, and academically.
Clothes To Kids of Fairfield County is committed to ensuring that school children have quality clothing so they can attend school with the confidence and self-esteem needed to achieve academic success.
Whether in the form of money, clothing, or time, we ask that you join our cause and donate.
$50 will provide one child with a full week’s wardrobe of school clothes. $200 provides warm coats for 10 children. $400 provides new underwear and socks for 50 children! Funding from private support is vital to the success of the program. Please consider a monetary donation in any amount.
