Walmart donates $25,000 to help Clothes for Kids serve Snohomish County children

Clothes for Kids, a Snohomish County-based nonprofit that provides clothes for school-age children in need, announced Monday that it has received a $25,000 grant from Walmart.

This is the second straight year that Walmart has provided the organization with a $25,000 grant. The donation will help Clothes for Kids fill gaps in its inventory and cover expenses related to its wardrobe program.

“Thanks to Walmart’s support in 2011, we grew our program by 10 percent and provided 4,044 wardrobes to school-age children throughout Snohomish County,” said Joy Ingram, Clothes for Kids’ director of development. “This year we anticipate providing more than 4,500 wardrobes.”

Clothes For Kids receives no government funding and operates on a shoestring budget, using more than 50 volunteers to administer its program.
