July Shopping Dates at Our Kids' Closet

We are open on the 1st Thursday (6-8 pm) and 1st Saturday (9-11 am) each month. Our dates in July are:

•  Saturday, July 1st 9-11am
•  Thursday, July 6th 6-8pm

If you live in Washington, Waukesha, or Ozaukee county, are of low income, and your children are in need of clothing (newborn through 14/16), you are welcome to stop in to shop.
Our Kids' Closet exists only because of the generous donations of like-new clothing, so please keep us in mind and drop off some of those clothes that you no longer need. We accept newborn through size 14/16.  Our 24 hour donation bin is located at St. Boniface Church or drop off on any of our open shopping days at Columbia St. Mary's Clinic - both in Germantown, WI.

St. Boniface New Socks & Undies

This past month St. Boniface Parish held a New Socks & Undie collection and boy was it a success! Because our space is generously donated to us by Columbia St. Mary's Clinic and our like-new clothing comes to us through community donations, one of the few on-going finacial drains on us is the purchase of new socks and underwear. Having these items available for our families to choose from is such a blessing.  For most of us, if we need to purchase new items it's not even something we think about: We just go out find the best deal we can and make our purchase. But for many families these types of purchases must be put off until the money is available. Putting off a purchase isn't the easiest of things to do when the need is socks or underwear for your kids.

So we would like to say thank-you to everyone who donated to this drive and also to community for their on-going donations of like-new clothing. Together we are making a difference!

Divine Consign Donation

Our Kids’ Closet would like to thank Divine Consign for their generous donation of beautiful children’s clothing to our facility. Divine Consign is a community-based, one-of-a-kind shopping event that allows women to buy fashion at great bargains and also earn money.  It is truly a Divine shopping experience!  The clothing they passed on to us was in such wonderful condition that it was a special treat for our volunteers to go through the bags and hang up the items.  I’m sure that the donated items will be gladly taken home and much appreciated by our clientele.  Thank-you so much for your generosity!

TCI's Mitten Tree

A big thanks to all of the folks at TCI, LLC of Germantown!. They gathered and donated a bunch of great items for our shoppers. And they did it with style: They hosted a “mitten tree” as you'll see in the picture.

It was great, and VERY successful.  The new hats, gloves, scarves and clothing will all go to those who need them.

The generosity of the people and businesses that we have within our community never fails to amaze me.

Thanks TCI!!!
