Clothes For Kids Expands "Coins For Kids" Collection

Cindy Russell

For more than a decade, Clothes For Kids has partnered with schools in the Edmonds School District to hold "Coins For Kids" coin drives.  In the last six years alone, these have raised more than $175,000 in support of the Clothes For Kids mission to provide back to school wardrobes to eligible Snohomish County school children.  This year, we are excited to extend this very successful program to merchant associations around Snohomish County.

The first business community to partner with Clothes For Kids in this endeavor is Mill Creek Town Center, led by Kaitlyn Durham of Celsius Salon.  Says Durham:  "The beauty of this drive is its simplicity.  Instead of putting your change in your pocket or wallet, add it to the other coins and help Clothes For Kids fulfill their mission."

The need has never been greater.  In the first 43 days of this year's Back To School season, we have already provided wardrobes to 2,338 children from all over the county--for an estimated total of 47,000 pieces of clothing.  This represents a 20% increase over the same time period in 2011.  With the support of our community, Clothes For Kids can continue to meet the growing demands for our resources.

Look for "Coins For Kids" canisters at the following Mill Creek Town Center merchants throughout the month of November:

Since 1984, Clothes For Kids has enhanced the learning environment by addressing the clothing needs of low-income children in Snohomish County.  These services are provided to children in the community so that they may arrive at school ready to learn.

If your community is interested in participating in "Coins For Kids," please contact the Clothes For Kids office at 425-741-6500.

We also invite you to follow us on Facebook to discover other ways you can become involved in transforming lives--one wardrobe at a time.
