The Need in NYC

Children’s Clothing Insecurity: A Hidden Crisis

Basic needs don’t stop with food and housing—clothing, shoes, and school supplies are fundamental to a child’s social, emotional, and mental development.

Not having appropriate clothing harms a child’s health, safety, and self-esteem, factors known to impact a child’s academic performance and long-term success. Without adequate and appropriate clothing, children face unfair barriers and participate in life on an unequal playing field.

By the Numbers in NYC

More than
86,000
children live in
deep poverty.

More than
576,000
children live in homeless
and low-income situations.

More than
15,000
children sleep in emergency shelters each night.

 

How Giving Factory Direct Meets the Need

Giving Factory Direct is leading the way in NYC by filling this unrecognized and critical gap in support services.

Giving Factory Direct is an innovative, new clothing donation program to support children facing Clothing Insecurity in our communities.

You and your family donate clothes from the comfort of your home directly to a child who needs them. Donate either high-quality, gently used clothing you already have or buy brand new clothes.  

 

Our Impact:

“A child was coming in without a coat on –he’d have three hoodies on because the parents couldn’t afford a coat for him –once I placed the order, the parent was nearly in tears that they were able to receive a coat.”

—Sheltering Arms, NYC Service Partner

“Remy loves to dress up and the beautiful clothes she received made her feel like a princess. In this time when so many of us have so little you made us feel that we lack nothing.”

—Remy’s Mother

“Giving Factory Direct clothing quality has been great! It’s been so impactful because they have been the largest provider of clothing at this point and we have integrated the program into our donation process.”

—Win NYC, NYC Service Partner

“The children are super happy and excited –the next day they will come in and say, ‘Look what I’m wearing!’ One child received a tutu dress and she did not want to stop wearing it.”

—Sheltering Arms, NYC Service Partner
