Announcing Kids Kloset

clothingdriveWestchester Jewish Community Services (WJCS) is issuing a "clothes call" to launch its newest program - Pass It On Kid's Kloset - that will provide new and gently-used children's clothes and essentials to Westchester families in need.

Nearly 12% of children in Westchester, ages 0-18 live in poverty. All Kid's Kloset items will be given free to families living at or below the poverty line and each request will be filled with a personally packed bag made especially for a designated child.

In order to fill the shelves, Kid’s Kloset seeks gently-used and new children's clothing and shoes, select baby supplies and new children's socks, underwear, pajamas, baby bottles and sippy cups.

Donations can be dropped off during business hours at WJCS Headquarters at 845 North Broadway in White Plains, or they also can be brought directly to Kid's Kloset by contacting Stephanie Roth, Volunteer Director, at kidskloset@wjcs.com, or call 914-761-0600 X 715.

Kids Kloset is also seeking collaboration with local houses of worship, community groups and businesses to run clothing collection drives. Kid's Kloset volunteers will help coordinate the drives and your assistance in securing entrée to such groups will be greatly appreciated. If you have contacts with groups who can help, get in touch with Stephanie Roth. Also share the news about the program with family, friends, neighbors and business colleagues.

In addition, financial contributions will allow Kid's Kloset to provide items that are not donated. To make an online contribution, please go to: https://app.etapestry.com/hosted/WestchesterCommunityServ/OnlineDonation.html. Checks made payable to WJCS Kid's Kloset can be sent to WJCS, 845 North Broadway, White Plains, NY 10603.
