Welcome to KidPack Direct™
Thank you for your interest in KidPack Direct™, an innovative, new clothing donation program that allows you and your family to directly support children facing Clothing Insecurity in your community!
COVID-19 has created unprecedented demand for food, clothing and other basic needs. At the same time, physical distancing requirements make the process of meeting those needs more challenging. Finding new, safe ways to collect and provide resources has become essential.
KidPack Direct easily matches you with a child in your community and enables you to donate high-quality, gently-used clothing from the comfort of your own home. By participating in this pilot program, you are helping to meet a child’s immediate needs.
The process is quick and easy! Just head to your closet and get ready to pack and ship!
Why KidPack Direct Matters
Twenty-two million American children currently live below 200% of the federal poverty line ($25,100 for a family of four, annually). All are at risk of being clothing insecure. Not having appropriate clothing harms a child’s health, safety and self-esteem, factors known to impact a child’s academic performance and longer-term success. Cradles to Crayons® believes that all children should have what they need at home, at school, and at play. We’ve been connecting communities to provide no-cost access to these essentials since 2002. Now, thanks to KidPack Direct, we can go beyond our current service to support those 22 million children across the country.
