Clothes For Kids hosted 23 Boeing employees and retired Sno-King Bluebills for the Global Day of Service Saturday July 12.
Boeing employees helped Clothes For Kids with critical set up for its back to school re-opening.
“They inventoried and helped to set up shoes as well as assisted in transporting coats and shoes from our storage unit and helped to set up new shelving and clothing racks,” said Nancy Laird-Burris, Clothes For Kids Program Manager. “The ongoing support of Boeing employees has been significant to the success of Clothes For Kids.”
Clothes For Kids has been serving Snohomish County since 1984 as a non-profit organization providing wardrobes for low-income families. Thanks to generous contributions from the community it has grown the program to serve over 15,000 students in the past five years. This spring, the Boeing Employee Community Fund contributed more than $38,000 to help Clothes For Kids remodel the interior of its building.
Clothes For Kids invites the community to see the results of the remodel during its Open House on August 6 from 2-7 p.m. Everyone is invited to drop in and take a look around our newly renovated space as we prepare for the upcoming school year. There will be a ribbon cutting at 4 p.m. and a raffle prize drawing at 6:00. No clothing will be distributed to clients at this event. Back to School shopping begins Aug. 20.
