Give Back with an Outfit Pack
Jessica and Brian’s Story
Jessica, 8 years old, and Brian, 10 years old, live with their single mother who works a full time job and is head of the household. She struggles to cover all the expenses plus buy clothes for her children—Jessica and Brian often have to wear shorts and skirts to school on cold winter days. Cradles to Crayons was able to provide both children with a comprehensive outfit pack that included a week’s worth of warm sweaters, pants, shirts, and pajamas. After receiving their KidPacks, Brian and Jessica’s mother said, “Meeting my children’s physical and emotional needs is what worries me the most. Today, I see both needs met and I am very thankful.”
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.
