Amazing Anonymous Donation!

Let me start by saying that we REALLY appreciate every single donation that we receive, and that we couldn't do what we do without the communities unwavering generosity.  But.....every once in a while some incredibly generous individual, or group, takes us by surprise and goes above and beyond our expectations.  Well, I'm happy to say that once in a while happened for us again this week.  We received in our collection bin a large donation of NEW winter jackets, snow-pants, gloves, and socks.  This donation couldn't have come a better time to help restock our dwindling supply of winter weather outerwear.  Thank-you so much to whomever made this donation, and all of you that have donated in the past to help us supply the beautiful clothing for those that shop with us.

Donation Bin is now Open!!

We are pleased to announce that donation bin is open again.  The donation bin is located at St. Boniface, against the garage in the upper parking lot.

We appreciate your patience during this difficult time.

We really value the donations we get from the community. It’s what makes it possible for us to do what we do!

What a great Community!

Check it out!
This anonymous donation showed up in our donation bin this past week.  A pile of cute outfits to say the least and – all brand new!  Just think how much it will mean to a family living right here in our own community to be able to choose a new outfit to take home for their daughter, especially at this time of year.

This is just one example of the kindness that we see that shows just how much our community cares about one another.  We’re truly blessed and humbled to be able to witness such generosity, and to be a help to others by distributing donations like this.

Crossway Church Donation

Our Kids' Closet would like to extend a thank-you to the generous donors of Crossway Church.  Your large donation of like-new and new clothing was a very much appreciated gift that we are excited to pass on to families that visit our facility.  I also really enjoyed showing the Crossway Volunteers around Our Kids’ Closet and appreciated their help sorting and hanging up some of the donated clothing items.  We are all looking forward to having the these items available for our busy September shopping days and beyond.  I know that the families we serve will appreciate it, and so do we!
