This will be the fourth year I’ve hosted the Holiday Clothing Drive. I had to skip 2015 because life and sanity, but missing a year seemed to make our whole family even more anxious to get back to it for 2016. Plus the kids are two years older so I have more people to help me not screw up the mile-long spread sheet I’ll have halfway through this. Together, we’ve clothed over 150 kids for the holidays and I would love to double that number this year.
Here’s how it works:
Families who are in need of gently used dress clothes for their kids for the holidays but can’t afford them this year are matched with gently used holiday clothing donated by other families. I also welcome donations of gift cards because there are often sizes I can’t match or families who live in an area where it’s much less expensive to email them an e-gift card rather than ship clothing.
Are you in need of holiday clothing for your children?
Holiday clothing can be the last thing we splurge on and so often there is just not enough money to buy everything this time of year. If a donation of clothing would make it easier to put food on the table or buy a few gifts this season please don’t be shy and let me know, we would be happy to help!
Are you able to donate?
We all know our kids wear cute holiday dresses and dry clean only dress pants once, maybe twice a year. Around here dress pants are the only pairs that don’t have holes in both knees by the time I’m putting things away for the summer so they are always donation-ready. Do you have new or gently used holiday clothes you could donate to a family in need? If you don’t have clothes to donate, donating a gift card would be much appreciated so I can send hard-to-match families shopping for their own Christmas attire.
What to do next:
If you are in need or if you are able to help, fill out the form below. I will try to respond to you and match you up with a family quickly but, depending on the volume of needs and donations coming in, it may take a few weeks so please be patient with me.
In order to make sure everyone has their outfits in time for the holidays, requests will end on December 10th.
Thanks so much everyone, I couldn’t do this without all of you!!
