For our Sharing Closets project, we collected gently used clothing articles to donate to Friends of Foster Children of Palm Beach County, a nonprofit organization that provides services and supports those affected by the foster care system. In total, we collected 860 items of clothing which weighed 360 pounds! This is equivalent to nine bags of clothing.
Oftentimes, only a small percentage of funding goes towards providing foster children with new clothing. Kids are also not able to take much with them when they move. Therefore, it is important that all kids have access to resources such as clothing that allow them to feel comfortable, especially as the school year approaches.
Thank you to everyone that donated and thank you to Friends of Foster Children of Palm Beach County for giving us the opportunity to help out those in the foster care system. We hope that each person enjoys wearing the clothes that were donate!
