Clothes To Kids announces the need for Clothing Drives. CTK is open and very busy providing Clothes To Go bags to school-aged children, in need, in Hillsborough and Pinellas communities. During this time of Thanksgiving, we are asking our communities of friends, families, businesses, places of worship and media to promote and run needed clothing drives.
Children who receive a Clothes To Go bag from Clothes To Kids, are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch or who are in crisis. What do they receive? Each Clothes To Go bag includes 5 pairs of new underwear, 5 pairs of new socks, 5 tops, 4 bottoms, 1 dress (optional) and a pair of shoes, totally free! If your child attends a uniform school they may receive 3 uniform tops and 2 bottoms. CTK request form: https://clothestokids.org/back-to-school-bags.
