We've gone virtual!

This year, give back by providing a child with a completed outfit or pajamas, socks and underwear pack. Learn more on how to get involved below.

The Need

Massachusetts unemployment has been one of the highest in the nation during the pandemic, peaking at over 17% at the start of the summer before falling to 11.3% in August. As temperatures begin to fall, our families need support more than ever.
To be able to provide as many families as possible with the help they need, we have adapted the Give Back with an Outfit Pack initiative to go completely virtual.

How to Give Back

1. Sign Up

Use the registration form on this page! You can register as an Individual/Family, or sign up your organization to participate. This year, you can choose between completing a full Outfit Pack, or a Pajamas, Socks and Underwear Pack. If you have clothing at home, let us know so we can match you with a similarly-sized child! After registering, you will receive your tag with details via email within 3-5 business days.

2. Fill Your Pack

Either shop online (check out the Old Navy coupon code on the tag for a discount), or head to your closets and fill your pack with like-new items. Packs can be filled with new or gently used clothing, except socks and underwear which must be donated new.

3. Return it

Have you gathered all the items for your pack? Great! Items can be either shipped or brought directly to our Giving Factory at 281 Newtonville Avenue, Newton, MA 02460. Please complete this survey with your tag number so we know the pack is on its way.

Your Impact

The Give Back with an Outfit Pack program lets you and your family, friends, and colleagues have a direct and immediate impact on local children by shopping for desperately needed winter layers in our most needed sizes. Each complete Outfit Pack donated will dress one child for an entire week. This year we have the goal to collect 1,000 Outfit Packs that will directly impact 1,000 kids. We could not do this without the support of donors like you!

Partner Story

“During this time of the coronavirus, we are still continuing to see well children in the pediatric department at the health center. Though . . . we have adapted the necessary masks in providing care. Many of our families are struggling due to no daycare and for many, no current employment. They appreciate anything we can provide. Your generous donation is appreciated by our team and the families we care for.” – The Pediatric Team at Lynn Community Health Center
